Last year in September 2018, Hatta Wadi Hub opened its doors to the public. For those who previously went mountain biking in Hatta, a lot has changed. The venue is now a vibrant place that hosts a bike shop with bicycles and equipment for rent, a coffee shop and a reception area where you can book a variety of outdoor activities such as; ropes course, archery, free fall jumping, down carting and more.
If you want to take in the beautiful scenery – mountains, nature, farms, the dam and inhale the fresh air for a little longer, you can spend the night in a mountain lodge or a retro trailer.
What is not quite visible when visiting the venue are the mountain bike trails which span over 50km further down the mountains, all well maintained and signposted. It starts from easy green routes for beginners to longer and more technical rides to bring experienced riders deeper and higher up in the mountains.
This exciting new destination has drawn in a lot of new customers who like to experience mountain biking. For this category we offer ‘Introduction to MTB’ sessions during the cooler months to make sure enthusiasts get the best experience. Mountain biking is an adventure sport and has the potential of causing injuries, a fact that most new riders overlook especially on such challenging terrain like the Hatta rocks.
Hatta resort will be closing for the summer on May 4th until September 30th however the Mountain biking trails remain open all year round with more developments to the trails to enhance our customer’s experience and to continue challenging our riders. ■
