Mini Club Dubai – Return to Jebel Jais

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.

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.

  1. […] I’ve been debating for some time on whether to change the colour of Pocket’s wheels to white to match the roof,stripes and brake ducts and was looking into the various options such as powder coating, painting and plastidip when I came across local company Limelite International based in Al Quoz, Dubai, who were offering plastidip on alloys as a new service. Having decided that I wanted to see what my Mini JCW would look like, albeit with the option to reverse at a later date, I booked Pocket into Limelite before the last Jebel Jais roadtrip. […]
