Dubai has smashed another Guinness World Record with Al Qudra Cycling Track being declared 'longest continuous cycling path', the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) announced on Tuesday.
Spanning 80.6km, Al Qudra lane surpassed the previous world record registered in 2020 for a 33km cycling track. The track runs over wide parts of Al Qudra area, which spans about 188 square kilometres.
A marble plaque inscribed with the achievement and the logos of RTA and the Guinness World Records was unveiled in a ceremony on Tuesday.
Maitha bin Adai, CEO of Traffic and Roads Agency, said the feat was part of the authority's efforts to turn Dubai into a bicycle-friendly city, as envisioned by the emirate's Crown Prince, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
“This continuous cycling track has sub-tracks that extend 135 km along with the original track. It is equipped with emergency call phones distributed over 30 points along the lane, in addition to shaded places with seats, restaurants, and toilets as well as bike rental shops."
