Whether drained from walking around the dusty roads of Cairo or negotiating its endless traffic, motorbikes and scooters offer a convenient solution to short-distance travelling woes. In 6th of October City, Mall of Arabia's new automobile shop, Wheels, is located near gate 4, offering a range of two-wheeled vehicles to choose from.

Specialising in all kinds of high-end branded products, Wheels offers a variety of items including bicycles for all ages, scooters with different sized engines, golf carts and mini electronic cars for children. The staff are keen to please, and are well-versed in the products available and the suitability to your needs.

With scooters becoming the new trend on the streets, Wheels have a variety of Peugeot Vivacity scooters; a 125cc model was priced at 13,900LE, 150cc was 15,900LE, and a special edition scooter was retailing at 14900LE; all of which were available in black, white, brown and cream.

Of course, riding an unshielded automobile requires safety garments, and the shop stocks a variety of protective items for both children and adults. On display were a variety of hard helmets; an AGV, matt black helmet with padding for comfort and a plastic visor was priced at 2400LE, while another blue Index helmet was 1400LE. While some had a more professional appeal, others were more colourful to appeal to children.

Many favour push bikes for the pleasure of getting some exercise, and the shop also includes a variety of bicycles; Berg, a Portuguese brand for adults and children, range from 1350LE-4500LE, depending on the size and model. For a more professional ride, specialised American branded bikes range from 8900LE-12000LE.

For children's entertainment – and rarely found in Cairo – the shop stocks several electroni mini- cars, taking on the same designs of luxury cars including Hummers, Jaguars, Mercedes Benz and Range Rovers. Whilst a larger range is available to order in, at the time of our visit, only a black Range Rover (2650LE) and a silver Mercedes Benz S Class (3000LE) were available.

Wheels commits to offering a wide variety of vehicles along with all the equipment and garments a bike rider could need and caters for both experienced and novice bikers.
