anybody does cycling in riyadh?

although i know there's a club riyadh wheelers here in riyadh, i'm looking for somebody who does cycling here. RW season is over and i tried to get in touch a couple of times but nevertheless...

due to danger and some conservative issues (last month some locals purposely drove into some cyclists) i'm in the urge to look for a partner who's doing road cycling.

if anyone has any tips/suggestions/etc for me please don't hesitate tellin' me.

fyi i'm vincent from the netherlands and moved to riyadh 3 years ago, found out that i'm gettin' out of shape as a few years ago. brought my bike (racing/semi-prof) this year but a bit after the winter season (that means too late)

thanks and hope to get some reply.

Yes, I'd heard about this.  Best never to go into the desert without a very large group of people.

'Road cycling' sounds just as dangerous! 

Have you checked out the DQ?  I've heard that a lot of people cycle there.

I agree with alliecat, most people get an uncontrollable urge to run over cyclists in Riyadh.(Me included):D.

Never safe to do 'road cycling' here considering the high speed at which the traffic moves.

Best bet for you would be the DQ but I guess you better be prepared for some questioning by the security there.

hi i would to enjoy group of cycling

I invite you to create a new thread to introduce yourself and to ask your questions please.
If you wish to create a new group of cycling, feel free to launch a new thread abou it.

I'm very excited, and I am encouraged by it, and the place is an area called (Wadi Hanifa), a beautiful park and a few cars passing by, is located between the embassy district and the suburb of milk.
It wants to see the place and communicate with me. Thank you.
