We all need an extra push to get us out of the door when it comes to exercise, whether you work out every day or once in a blue moon.
And this week your motivation is coming from an unlikely source, as the Public Works Authority (Ashghal) is calling on people to try out the Olympic Cycling Lane.
The route, which just picked up a Guinness World Record, connects Doha to the Al Bayt World Cup 2022 stadium in Al Khor.
It’s 33 km in length, completely separate from the road, and is designed to allow speeds of up to 50 kph.
Ashghal is asking people to share their ride on its website here, and wants you to reveal details about your trip such as your start and end point, what services you used and any feedback you may have.
The authority has also called on people to share photos and videos from their journey.
The news comes after it was announced that the fast cycling track is set to be developed even further.
Ashghal and Qatar Cyclists Center will now provide services such as electric bike parking spaces and maintain signage and the asphalt.
Dr AbdulazizJaham Al Kuwari, president of Qatar Cyclists, said, “We seek to encourage all family members to use the fast track, including provision of first aid to those who are on the track and providing logistics services using motorcycles to provide emergency assistance.”
