Early Birds Take to Abu Dhabi’s Streets
Teams of cyclists in Abu Dhabi set out early on Tuesday to take part in the second annual #cycletoworkuae day in an effort to promote cycling as a viable means of transport and a path to an active lifestyle.
Just after sunrise, a group of five from the Canadian embassy met at the Eastern Mangroves in the capital from where they made their way to the embassy at Abu Dhabi Trade Towers at Abu Dhabi Mall.
Arif Lalani, Canada’s ambassador to the UAE, was happy to promote cycling habits in his home country while commending local efforts to encourage others to hit the pavement.
“With the promotion of a cycle culture, Abu Dhabi is joining other world-class cities such as Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, and Vancouver in fostering new approaches to city life,” he said. Details
