Cycle Rickshaws make inroads in Dubai

If you live in or frequent the Business Bay area, you will sight something unusual!

A brand new concept has been launched in the UAE and this is a green and convenient mode of alternative transportation for residents and visitors of Business Bay.

For Dh10, people can now ride smart bikes - basically cycle rickshaws - that have started to ply on Bay Avenue in Business Bay, Dubai.

Smart Bike UAE offers two different options for people to get around the Business Bay area, either as a passenger or cyclist, with bikes available for hire at kiosks at three different locations: Business Bay Metro Station, Bay Square and Bay Avenue.

Originally developed in Germany, Smart Bike seeks to create a wide network of short distance transportation that will support current transport facilities, closing the gap between the commuter and his destination, and provide a method of transportation that is both convenient and fun to use.

A great initiative for sure but would it be a good idea in the scorching summers to ride a Non-Ac bike?
