Revolution Cycles review

Cycle paths form a huge part of the RTA’s projects. It plans to build tracks in communities across town, as well as alongside the growing Dubai Tram route. Al Barsha, Jumeirah, Umm Suqeim, Al Sufouh, Al Warqa’a, Mirdif and Al Mizhar are all set to get designated routes as part of the Bicycle Master Plan (originally launched back in 2012), which promises 900km of cycle paths across Dubai by 2020. Not that Dubai’s residents have been sitting around waiting.

The cycling scene has bloomed over the past three years, aided by tracks such as Al Qudra and Nad Al Sheba, events such as the Dubai Tour and newbie-friendly Cycle Safe Dubai nights, such as the ones held by Revolution Cycles at the Autodrome in Motor City. In fact, the specialist bike shop has been instrumental in nuturing the UAE’s riding scene.

Based in Motor City’s Apex Atrium building, Revolution employs staff who really know their stuff (though we do wish they’d open earlier than 11am on weekends). It’s also an honest, reliable place, because while they may stock eye-wateringly pricey, top-of-the-range gear for serious athletes, they’re just as ready to help you tune up a city bike (or, if you’re useless like us, fix a puncture) for a nominal fee. They’re also not in the business of trying to sell punters things they don’t need.

Many cyclists in Dubai are just starting out. If that’s you, it’s worth knowing where you’re not going to be taken for a ride.
