Mini Club Dubai last ventured to Jebel Jais back in March (check it out here including map) and being probably the best driving road in the UAE, it proved a popular vote for the Winter’s first Club drive.
As usual we met up at ACE Hardware car park with many new faces joining the Club this time round. After urgent coffees and a quick drivers briefing we set off on the Emirates Road towards Ras Al Khaimah.
A quick stop off at a petrol station to reunite the two parts of the convoy and we were on our way. Soon enough we made it through Ras Al Khaimah and split into two groups again with one group stopping for Friday prayers whilst the rest proceeded up the 30 km of twisting mountain roads.
Then we were off, whizzing up the mountain’s twisting roads, some at a gentle pace, others at speed tehe.
We gathered at the top and waited for the remainder of the second group to arrive. A few photos later we headed back down the mountain then onto the Al Hamra Palace Resort, where we had lunch before heading back to Dubai.
All in all a fantastic drive with the club with so many new faces as well as old. Next roadtrip will be in January 2015, keep an eye on the Mini Club Dubai facebook page for details.
