Tale of two cities
Good news for frustrated drivers spending half their life in Dubai traffic and the other half looking for parking space. The Road Transport Authority of Dubai is framing policies to encourage bicycles on Dubai roads to reduce traffic woes. Now you dont need to spend endless hours in your car manouvering, honking and cursing; you can enjoy pedalling in the 45 degree summer heat in all it's glory. And incase you plan to pass the dreaded Dubai-Sharjah border, make sure you gear up for some weight-lifting too since bicycles are banned in the land of no return.
