Route Map Oman

I finally figured out how to share our route with you.

Click on the map to see the entire route from our month in Oman. It will open a new page that can be viewed, scaled and downloaded.

  1. Thanks for sharing your journey about cycling through Oman! There are so little write-ups from this area. I really enjoyed your photos and stories. I’m curious to see your map, but it’s not loading. Can you share another way or even as a picture? Thanks!

  2. Dear Paul, I’m a HUGE fan of your travels and read your blog everywhere, I’m going to follow your map in Oman next month and had two questions which I hope you can answer:

    1- You did your route clockwise, wouldn’t it be better if I do your route ANTI clockwise? this way I’ll have more gentle downhill all the way to the coast?

    2- Should I follow your route exactly as it is? or in hindsight, would you recommend that I change some sections?

    I thank you in advance.

    Bobak.

    1. Hi Bobak,

      Thank you for reading our blog and I’m happy you like it. I’m glad you’re going to Oman. It’s a great place to cycle.

      We chose to go clockwise because it was a more gentle climb into the mountains. And our friends, who had not already been cycling for 7 months (and 10,000 km) like us, wanted some time to get their legs, so to speak. It’s a hard climb up to Jebel Shams so conditioning is important.

      I suppose you could follow our route exactly, or choose your own. I will leave that up to you. There are not that many choices in terms of roads to follow. The route we followed along the coast and into the mountains were all beautifully paved. Once we were in the high mountains, the pavement disappeared. There are other routes across the mountains: route 15, 23 and 25. I believe they are paved and it would be a beautiful route taking you through many small villages.

      Enjoy your trip and let us know how it went.

      Paul

      1. Thanks so much Paul for the quick response, I’ll go anti clockwise than as that 400km gentle uphill is not my cup of tea 🙂

        I’ll let you know with a short report once I get back. Have a nice year

        Bobak.
