Power to ride more trails

There is no better feeling than setting off for an adventure on two wheels; freedom, independence, discovery. Mountain biking is just one discipline that can give enjoyment to all the family. 

From experimenting on the sand dunes of Dubai to building endurance on the spectacular trails in Hatta. It’s an activity that can turn into a lifestyle, living to ride. You won’t find traditional forestry tracks and muddy downhills, but you will get cross-country trails like no others.

At The Cycle Hub, you can give mountain biking a go at the bi-annual Great Dubai Pulse Ride in conjunction with Dubai Sports City. Each March and November, you can bring the family to Sports City and explore the dunes.

For the more experienced rider, there is a thriving mountain bike community and a series of competitive events. Hatta MTB Trail Centre is the first of it’s kind in the United Arab Emirates, with the fully established Hatta MTB Endurance Challenge attracting hundreds of mountain bikers each time.

And to fuel your ride, start the day with a healthy paleo smoothie. The Green Power Smoothie is packed with nutrients. Not only does it taste good, but you’ll feel good inside too! ■
