This desert biking tour is great for those looking to explore Oman’s scenic landscapes and get an authentic experience that is far from the city crowds. We meet up and start at the Al Hamra shopping street from where the group along with their cycles travels via car to the starting point. Travelling through the spectacular landscape we arrive at the edge of the huge inland desert of Oman. We disembark where the desert landscape meets the surrounding hills at an area which is called Ras Al Jabal or 'the head of the Mountains'. The trails we follow are smooth and wide. However the sand being blown across the desert tends to accumulates on the path and this can make cycling here somewhat more challenging. The areas we will cross are very sparsely populated and you are likely to come across more camels than people through the day.It’s a profound and intimate experience cycling through the Omani outback, where you are closest to nature under the blue skies cycling in solitude through vast undisturbed stretches of barren valleys and arid wilderness. Amid this deserted landscape you will find little sign of human civilization, even the nearest shop is around 30km away. Thus the group is escorted by a support vehicle closeby which carries food, water and emergency supplies. Halfway through the tour, about 17km in, we will stop at a small camel farm where we will take a break from cycling through the Ras Al Jabal and adjourn for lunch and some exploration. At the farm they breed and train camels and one can often spot cute young camel calves, which makes for one of the best photo opportunities on this Outback cycling tour. Post a leisurely lunch we set out again. After cycling for 20km through the arid landscape dotted with hillocks and the occasional tree, we arrive at a small village. Here we will get back onto a paved road and head back towards Al Hamra. At this point everyone has the option to either take a car ride back to Al Hamra or cover the remaining 25 km by cycle. Our MTB bike tour ends when we reach Al Hamra.

Meet our representative at Al Hamra, from where the bike tour to Bahla and Jibreen starts. We start off at an easy pace and begin cycling towards Bahla. The path is even and we traverse through smooth roads and some off road paths. After reaching Bahla, we proceed through the labyrinths of narrow roads in the city to visit the Bahla Fort, or the pottery souk(marketplace). The Bahla fort and surrounding settlement is a UNESCO world heritage site which showcases the heritage and history of Oman. We then continue towards Jibreen Fort. This beautiful fort was built in the 17th century and has been restored to highlight the stunning architecture and décor of the time. The two towns biking tour ends when we reach there, and we head over to a picnic spot near the fort for lunch.
