Morning Fewbie Plus Desert Drive - Bowling in Sweihan - Chapter II - Abu Dhabi - 18 Sep 2021


Recommended Posts

Drive Brief
For those in @Carnity who are used to off-roading mostly in Dubai and Sharjah, this drive offers the opportunity to discover, toghether with the Abu Dhabi based members of the Club, the breathtaking beauty of the landscape, the amazing heights of the dunes and the incredible depth of the bowls in Sweihan, one of the most coveted off-roading destinations in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

For those coming from outside the Emirate, enduring the hassle of getting a Covid-19 test will be largely rewarded by a memorable experience: we will start from E16 Al Taf Road heading West, in the opposite direction than 2 weeks ago, with the sun rising behind us, gently riding the first dunes to get acquainted with the landscape. After the initial warm up we will start tackling the big dunes that make Sweihan such a renown off-roading place, enjoying all the climbs, the crests, the ridges and - above all - the large bowls it offers, moving a series of high and complex dunes in an exciting sequence of climbs and rides around some of the biggest and deepest bowls to be seen around before completing our loop back to E16.

Dear @Lorenzo Candelpergher, can you please add me on the WL, for a 2nd drive ?

Thank you

Hope you can make it @JeromeFJ I was there a couple of weeks back only to shred my tyre after 30 mins, bad luck, but that half a hour was worth the trip, the new tyre and a new heart after those amazing bowls. I'm addicted, I was almost changing my travel plan after seeing the announcement of this drive!

Dear @ShereenMK, unfortunately this is a Fewbie Plus drive and your rank in @Carnity doesn't allow you to join it.

I have therefore removed it from the RSVP, I hope you understand this is for your own safety, especially in this particular drive that entails going through some very large and deep bowls and across some very high dunes. 

I'm sure you'll sure make it to Fewbie Plus soon and look forward to having you in one of the next drives.

@Mus_hus78, I thought it was just the bumper!! Sorry to hear the news.. You'll tell me all about it when we meed on Saturday. 

For Chapter II, we'll make sure you fly even higher but land your Pajero unscathed 😉
