ASIATODAY.ID, MEDINA – The city of Medina, Saudi Arabia is improving and preparing to become an environmentally friendly city in the world.
To make this happen, the City of Medina has completed 70 kilometers of bicycle lanes along main roads and residential areas by 2023.
This project was built to improve the quality of life and create more inviting public spaces through a humanizing city program.
Reporting from the Saudi Gazette, Wednesday, December 27 2023, the newly established bicycle lanes not only provide a safe and comfortable mode of transportation.
The facility also serves as a platform to promote health and fitness awareness among the city’s residents. This trail caters to both novice and professional cyclists, and offers opportunities for skill improvement and physical activity. The line is seamlessly integrated into the public transport system, providing a sustainable alternative for commuters.
The Careem BIKE service, which offers bicycle rental stations, operates more than 165 stations throughout the city.

This initiative is in line with the municipality’s vision to improve the quality of life for residents and create unforgettable experiences for visitors.
The availability of bicycle rental stations at historic sites and attractions, including the central area around the Prophet’s Mosque encourages exploration and enjoyment of the city’s unique offerings.
The introduction of these safe cycle lanes not only promotes sustainable transportation methods but also reduces environmental impact.
This holistic approach aims to transform Medina into a more attractive, efficient and livable city for its residents, workers and tourists. (AT Network)
