looks like as the weather is showing faint signs of getting better come September, guys are dusting cobwebs off their bikes and getting ready to ride.

anybody planning a ride, please feel free to post up here so that other inmates can join up.

I'm planning a dual sport ride to the mountains in Oman as well as Wahiba desert by Oct-Nov depending on work. Will post up ride plans once i finalise it.

I might be going this Friday. Leaving at 05.15AM from Dubai Marina area towards Hatta. I think I'll ride unpaved route close to Oman border (north of Hatta). Beat the heat!


Cheers,
Pim

What a coincidence.

I was planning on going from Hatta pools to ash shiyah this Friday.

What's your pace like?

Thumb Friday ride 22-AUG-14

Morning Hedonist222,

Planning to ride a part of this route the other way (from south to north). http://adventures.garmin.com/nl-NL/b...#pois/img-0869

On the other hand, did not ride in the Hatta Pools area yet. Isn`t that mostly asphalted/paved by now? I rode there with the car about 2 years ago and they were working on paving the rocky road from Hatta pools going south. Do you mean this route? https://www.google.nl/maps/dir/Hatta...4!2d24.6682532


How does your schedule look like tomorrow?

Hi Pim,

I'm going to be out the door by 4.30am tomorrow - in order to be on the bike by first light.

I won't be riding the bike to the spot. I'll put it on a trailer.
It takes an hour to reach Hatta from Jumeira.
