The perfect local adventure challenge to raise funds for a worthy cause or just a unique way to enjoy remote parts of the Emirates with adventurous friends. This ride takes us from Hatta to Kalba, along the east coast to Dibba, high up into the Hajjar mountains then back to Dubai via RAK, UAQ and Fossil Rock.
Tough but scenic mountain bike ride to Hajjar Bani Hamid and the wadi Shis pools. Cycle on quiet roads in the Omani enclave of Madha before venturing offroad on gravel tracks. See lush plantations, caves and falaj systems on the way to the small fresh water pools.
From Tawyeen we cycle along a picturesque road through the mountains. After 12 km we head into Wadi Yakel Alas passing ancient settlements and small farms. There is a short, but very steep, hill to negotiate before following Wadi Sidr back to Tawyeen.
Moderate cycle ride around Wadi Zikt. Start on a quiet tarmac road before heading onto the gravel track. Ride up to Al Owais dam before looping back to the wadi bed. The trail passes through a gap in the mountains with views to ancient villages and lush plantations.
