Revolution Cycles & Team CSD

Revolution Cycles network

Cycle Safe Dubai (CSD) was founded in 2009 by Stewart Howison with the aim to bring together enthusiastic cyclists of all ages and abilities who wanted the opportunity to take up or continue cycling.

CSD gives cyclists a chance to enjoy the sport with other like-minded people in a safe enjoyable environment and has created a supportive community for people in Dubai who love cycling.

Thanks to the success of Team CSD along with the substantial support and financial investments from the Dubai Royal Family and the Dubai Government, cycling as a recreational sport boomed over the past few year.

In it’s second year as a Club, the partners in Team CSD decided Dubai needed a cycling sportive, and so the Spinneys Dubai 92 Cycle Challenge was created in December 2010 with 450 riders taking to the streets of Dubai in what was to become the future event in the Social Cycling calendar.

Six years later, the “Spinneys Dubai 92 Cycle Challenge” is the largest mass times cycling event in the Middle East with approximately 2000 riders taking up the 92 km Challenge every year. In order to make the transition from “Couch to 92km ” a series of Build-Up riders were created, with the first event taking place 4 month before the “Spinneys Dubai 92 Cycle Challenge” at a distance of 35km, each month the distance increased , 45km , 65km , 85km and finally the crowning event “Spinneys Dubai 92 Cycle Challenge”.

As the owners of various other Cycle Challenge events, the founding partners of Cycle Safe Dubai decide to take the love and passion for getting people fit and on bikes to a new level.
