Cycle Morocco's Great South

Morocco's Great South

5
Overall, a great week of cycling. There were two big unknowns for me going into this adventure: 1) How difficult would the cycling be, and 2) How safe would I feel cycling through rural Morocco. The cycling was breathtakingly beautiful but not hard if you consider yourself a cyclist. Most of the people in our group weren't avid cyclists just relatively fit people looking for some adventure. If you do consider yourself a cyclist and rack up 100-200km or more per week, then look for something higher than "4" on the Exodus challenge meeter. That said, the rides were amazing with some good climbs and even better 'white knuckle' descents. The part about safety in Morocco? Don't sweat it. I never felt any concern for safety and the whole trip was supported by an experienced Exodus leader and two local chaps riding vans in front and in the back. All good on that front.

Great way to see Morocco

We started out with a great leader in the person of Reese who though only 25 we soon learned had literally biked around the world once. Service was great, two terrific van drivers, great snacks laid out at breaks and lunch everyone with a folding stool before a table spread with good food. Throughly enjoyed the group as the only American in a group of 14 from the UK, Denmark and Canada. Though we were delayed and rerouted on day one by flash floods and landslides our leader Reese adapted and soon had us back on course. Fantastic scenery, rural villages, friendly people even when we didn't speak the same language. I've tried several bike tour companies over the past few years but find Exodus beats them all.

Hard cycling - stunning landscapes!!

Leaving the frozen cars at Stansted on Nov 5th it was a delight to arrive in Marrakech where the sun shone and the temperature was a delicious 28 degrees!!!! Apart from one day in Marrakech (which is probably enough!) this really was a full on cycling trip. We were either going up (for many miles) or down (often cold). The snack stops and picnic lunches were warmly welcomed and usually somewhere lovely. Every day the landscape was different - I expected lots of scrubby desert so was pleasantly surprised. Essaouira was particularly lovely - walk through the streets after dinner and enjoy the local hustle and bustle.

Morocco - The Great South

This was my third trip to Morocco with Exodus and I found it the toughest, after the other two mountain bike trips. Whilst the trip notes do mention challenging climbs and there were, I felt that we were going either up hill or downhill. Downhill is great but does nothing for your cycling. The last afternoon of cycling was the best, ten miles of great undulating road in from the reservoir.

This was the most exciting adventure which everyone enjoyed whether seriously fit cyclists or more leisurely cruisers like myself. We experienced the beauty & drama of the countryside with the everyday life of Morocco in towns & villages. It was truly an exceptional experience, educational & fun.

A well run, well paced trip. Cycling was excellent but there are few flat roads in Morocco! Weather perfect. Accommodation is adequate but one cannot expect more in remote parts of the country. Some places had character. Food generally not great in accommodation but adequate.

Cycling in glorious landscapes in this amazing country...

What a fabulous trip, exactly what I was looking for. Cycling in the mountains and valley's of Morocco to the coastal towns of Agadir and Essaouira. A great way to see such a variety of landscapes and towns. Radu our guide and our two drivers were superb, professional throughout and could not have been more helpful. Just make sure you take enough warm clothes if you go early February!
