Abu Dhabi: The Department of Transport in Abu Dhabi (DoT) has called on cyclists to avoid cycling in banned areas in order to not affect other activities.

The ban covers five areas, the Corniche, Batin/Ras Al Akhdar, Al Maqtaa, Al Raha, and North of Saadiyat Island. The department also mentioned about cycling being allowed in specific areas but at specified speeds, along with strictly following the rules and regulations.

The department warned that the cyclist will be fined in case they were caught cycling without a licence, or with an expired licence, and with a damaged registration certificate. It added, “Cyclists under the age of 14, will be fined irrespective of being accompanied by a specialised trainer or an-above18 adult.”

Cycling in unauthorised places, cycling before sunrise or after sunset, is also banned, stated the Department of Transport.

Cyclists will be also fined in case of cycling recklessly, not abiding by the laws of maritime navigation and endangering boats and various marine facilities.

In addition, parking water bikes in non-designated areas will also be punished. Carrying more than the allowed number of passengers in a motor bike will invite hefty fines, the department added.
