How many Off road clubs are active in the UAE?

Recommended Posts

I know this post is done and dusted, but one of the oldest clubs out on the internet is ME4x4 , it's been around since telephones were used to organise drives...yes that is before the internet. :-D

Website is www.me4x4.me and facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/me4x4/

If you know the book by Michael Nott, "Advanced Off-Road Adventure Routes UAE-Oman, he used to be the chairman for the club, and many of the routes were done as club trips on exploration. The club has a grading system for the drivers, regardless of your past experience, and is geared more for longer duration and distance trips, so perhaps have look at the FB or website if it suits your nature of driving...and we are not associated with any offroad garage or shop so no one is going to sell you stuff you don't need.

+1 and so cool, as many off-road clubs here in Dubai are the front-end of off-road garage or off-road product selling shops.

I know I'm bumping an old topic, but wanna know if any offroad clubs are still active in this hot weather?

Few of us are thinking for a quick short evening drive and bbq with overnight camping if weather is nice at night. Appreciate if someone can give reference of working clubs in summer month.

Many clubs continue to have drives during the summer as well, most of them night drives to avoid the heat during the day time.

Sorry for the late response.

There's also another group of Guys going out Every Saturday and sometimes having Spontaneous Drives. It's https://www.facebook.com/groups/EveryDayDesertDrives/ and their

WhatsApp group  https://chat.whatsapp.com/7bvXtAFk4swI7Lx47cr6a1

Because it's not conflicting it's drives with other Clubs which mostly go out on Fridays, hence a complete Mix

This is one hefty thread here, but sad to see many clubs are so quite and dying from their website looks. May be this thread need some re-evaluation on what is really active as per OP, my two cents
