Sports Boulevard launches Riyadh’s immersive cycling experience

The Sports Boulevard has launched Riyadh's immersive cycling experience, RIYDE, in partnership with global technology company the pioneering virtual cycling simulator and sports technology innovator, to develop a cycling experience aimed at increasing fitness rates in Riyadh.

The Sports Boulevard is one of Riyadh's mega projects launched on March 19th, 2019. The project extends more than 135km through a grid of safe green pathways for pedestrians, cyclists, athletes, and horse-riders. The project includes more than 4.4 million square meters of greenery and open spaces, and up to 50 multidisciplinary sports facilities.

RIYDE, which has been created by the Sports Boulevard, will use cutting-edge technology to bring cycling to Riyadh's residents, allowing them to ride virtual routes and compete against one another in an immersive cycling booth. It will also feature world-class hardware, delivered by implementing partner.

With a total of 220km of cycling pathways being created as part of the Sports Boulevard, RIYDE has been designed to encourage a culture of cycling and sports in the capital whilst construction of the Sports Boulevard is underway.

Opening for an initial period of two weeks, the RIYDE booth will be at a number of public places and offer the opportunity for friends, family, and colleagues to socialise, exercise and compete against each other whilst enjoying a new sport in an indoor, air-conditioned booth.

The booth will be open for residents to visit and the cycling experience will consist of a virtual 5.24km route, the equivalent of 10-15 minutes of cycling, that can be tailored to differing fitness abilities. In addition to participating in the RIYDE experience, visitors to the booth will also be able to use virtual reality technology to explore how the Sports Boulevard will transform Riyadh once completed.
