The ILoveQatar.net (ILQ) team has put together some places, bicycle lanes and cycling trails that you can try if you want to bike in Qatar.
The 5/6 Park is known for the plant maze, street art, exercise areas, and Al Sumoud art installation, but it also features a 1.1 km bike route ideal for beginners.

Hamad International Airport's bicycle lane network is a great place to ride. For starters, they have more than 3 kilometres of bike lane where one can cruise and sweat it out.
To take your biking experience to the next level, you can bike at Al Fuwairit, located in the northern part of Qatar. The 5 kilometres trail starts in the middle of the desert with various uphill climbs along the way.
The terrain is challenging, with the heat of the sun and desert getting the best out of your body as you make the downhill ride. Riding your bike along the coastal area of the beach makes the trip memorable.
Al Karrarah is a desert paradise for off-road bikers in Qatar. Because of its far location, it is not frequented but is worth the travel. It is a vast open desert space with spots of greenery. There is much to explore and be one with nature.
This is one of the newest cycling sites in Qatar, established by the Filipino Mountain Biker Community. It is located near the Barwa City neighbourhood complex and features a rough road track with slopes for an adrenaline-pumping experience closer to home.

The terrains are tough to navigate. The deserted roads give a challenging feel for bikers who want speed.

That's why professional expertise is highly recommended when navigating this trail.
