Default Madha-Nahwa Trail (The literal Cross-country Trail


October 12, 2012. Solo explo ride over "two countries"
The geographical location of Madha and Nahwa is one best example of counter-enclaves. Nahwa is a small village under the UAE Emirate of Sharjah located inside Madha which is part of the Sultanate of Oman (another country). Technically, Nahwa is an enclave of UAE, and Madha is an exclave of Oman. Moreover, the only road access to Madha is via Fujairah, another Emirate of UAE, either from East or West. Basically, I rode over two countries with these sequence UAE-Oman-UAE-Oman-UAE-Oman-UAE.

Drove 130 Kms up to Fujairah, UAE.


Bike preping


Lively up yourself Rastaman...malungkot talaga pag solo


Final check on the bike...but not on the shorts!


The trail starts with a 4-meter wide "single track"


electric lines...at least there is still sign of civilization on this remote area.


...rolling over the wadi bed


...in between gorges


...lots of loose gravels

Nakakasabik kung saan ako dadalhin ng trail na ito...


Goat shelter


Ang Balon

I learned that this fence gate is the west border gate between the village of Nahwa, UAE and Madha, Oman.

Arriving at the village center of Nahwa


Continuing eastward exiting the village of Nahwa (UAE) and into the eastern part of Madha (Oman), I met this group of riders from Absolute Adventure (a tour company in UAE organizing adventure trips like MTB riding) with their back up vehicle close behind


With the first village of Madha (Oman) in view, I decided to turn back..medyo mainit na kasi


Back into the village of Nahwa (UAE)


The only grocery store in Nahwa


Electric Power in Nahwa is supplied by this generator


Refilling before the battle going back


One of my countless stops on my way back...the advantage of going solo is having your own sweet time for resting.


Sorry Vering kung napaghintay kita ng matagal.


Mission accomplished...another trail conquered!

Thanks for sharing. I don't have the courage to do a XC ride in foreign countries like those. Be safe and God bless!

Seph! thanks for sharing. Glimpse of the old well still evokes memories. It's good the govt maintain the route. Part of them are always devastated each year when the rain comes. But now it's a major artery for small villages so they maintain it whole year round.

That's Paul Oliver of AA... did you speak to him? Friendly guy and gives good rates to pinoy who rents his place.

Ride safe!
