    Mountain Biking in the United Arab Emirates?

    I am going to move to the UAE soon, and I am looking for mountain biking there. Does anybody know anything that would help me? Thanks!

    It depends which Emirate you are going to be in. I would guess either Abu Dhabi or Dubai? Unfortunately are nearly entirely flat, sandy desert. However, there are some good bike shops, there is a good one in Dubai on the Shaikh Zayed Road (the main highway which runs through the city) which mainly stocks Cannondale but has others as well I think. They might be able to point you towards riders groups though.

    If you go up towards Oman through the smaller Emirates (easily driveable on a day trip) you should find some good riding though as it begins to get a more mountainous and rocky. There are some videos on YouTube of people riding around there it looks good.

    Just remember to be careful in the heat, it is brutal.
