Perhaps the most novel and exciting leisure activity in Qatar is driving in the desert. Further to exploring the spectacular beauty of the unspoiled sand dune terrain of the Gulf, it affords you the excitement of serious off road fun driving. There is little to beat the freedom of dune bashing, roaring up and over dunes and really getting to know your car in challenging terrain. While driving on the dunes near Wakrah is popular, by far the best area to practice this activity is in the southeast of the country, around Khor Al Udaid, or the Inland Sea. This is fed by a tidal narrow channel from the Gulf on the borders of Qatar and Saudi Arabia. This vast area affords plenty of opportunity to drive over both sabkha (salt flats) and an astonishing variety of sand dunes of all shapes and sizes. The beauty and softness of the sand are wholly deceptive, however, and it cannot be sufficiently stressed that driving in the desert for the novice is potentially extremely dangerous if certain guidelines are not followed. Accidents do occur in the dunes and precautions should be taken seriously as the activity can be potentially dangerous. Frequently novice desert drivers have experienced grief in the sand, and run the risk of seriously damaging themselves and their vehicles. One of the most important things to remember is to always travel in a convoy. A convoy of between three to eight cars is recommended with at least two experienced desert drivers, one to lead the convoy and the other to fall in behind. They should assist with providing advice to novice drivers in the group. At least one person must know the Inland Sea area very well and be able to navigate carefully and sensibly. One or two trips rarely give the experience required to avoid getting lost or ending up on dangerous terrain. Inform family or friends in Qatar when and where you are heading and what time you are expected back.
Pirelli "Stella" tire 1952 poster detail
Pirelli "Stella" tire   1952 poster detail
This is just a rough scan - a detail from a 1952 Pirelli bicycle tire poster by the graphic artist Englemann. A copy of the large poster appears in the 1973 book "100 years of Bicycle Posters". A caption at the bottom of the original image states "Il Pneumatico per Tutti" (The Tire for Everyone). The Pirelli "Stella" clincher tire shown here is a wide and heavy weight model (around 660 grams) with a rather knobby raised diamond pattern tread with a single central rib. These would have been well suited to the rough city or rutted country roads of post WWII Europe. Tire size is marked with both the obsolete size notation of "28 x 1-5/8 x 1-3/8" and "700c x 35 mm" and this model has an unusually tall profile. I have a pair of these tires in all white, and I've seen them in white with orange central tread. A very popular tire which was produced for decades. This would be a good choice to mount on your 1950s Bianchi "City Bike" - complete with alloy fenders, of course.
