DISCLAIMER. MOUNTAIN BIKING CAN BE DANGEROUS. YOU JOIN US AT YOUR OWN RISK.

SAFETY BRIEFING.

  • Wear a helmet. Despite recent advances in medical science, brains still cannot be mended nor replaced.
  • Wear gloves or mitts. Hands often hit the ground first. Cuts and grazes invite infection and a hospital visit.
  • Wear eye protection, it only takes a twig or thorn to lose an eye. Crud catchers are a good idea in mucky weather.
  • When downhilling, for your own protection, allow plenty of space behind the rider in front.
  • Bring a bare minimum emergency tool kit and a spare inner tube.
  • Breakdowns are a bore. Plan not to have any by ensuring your bike is in perfect working order.
  • Punctures are also tedious. You can minimise them by fitting latex tubes, slime tubes or running tubeless tyres.

The Frontier Epic, Oman

Hello Guys - I am reaching out to see if you would circulate a post on your group page? Having ridden XC and MTB events in UK previously, I am based now in Dubai for the past 7 years. I am actively involved in the MTB scene out here, developing infrastructure for racing in particular. I acquired the rights to a fantastic multi-day stage race in Oman. It's called The Frontier Epic (formerly The Trans Hajar).

Take a look on www.frontierepic.com.

The price is 40% less than similar races elsewhere and includes full board and transfers. I can sort out a group discount depending on numbers. Muscat is a great place for a getaway. We can organise pre & post race activities like scuba diving, dolphin-watching, rock-climbing etc etc with local partners on the ground. Would love to see some of you out here. You can fly direct to Muscat, or fly into Dubai and transfer. Registration is quick & easy.

Is there a pub?

Believe it or not there's an Irish bar in a beach resort nearby :)
