This mountain bike cycle tour, using mainly jeep tracks and some fantastic single track, starts in the ancient walled city of Marrakesh. The old city was always the meeting place for traders over the centuries bustling with water sellers, snake charmers and market stalls packed with bargains.
We cycle through remote Berber villages clinging to the steep sides of the High Atlas Mountains, exploring the Berber villages and experiencing some of the fantastic long mountain biking descents offered by the region. A real experience of an ancient and fascinating country and culture.
DAY One: Arrival in Marrakesh
Meeting at the airport and transferred to Riad / Hotel in the center of city. Once you have settled in, you can explore the famous Djemaa el Fna square where you can see entertainers performing, a myriad of food stalls all lit up with the smells to accompany them, and the general melee of activity. Dinner & overnight in the accommodations Riad / Hotel.
Day Two: Marrakesh – Imlil – Tachedirt
This is the first day of riding. We head in direction of Tachedirt and start with a 1hr climb to the top of the pass. This trail is a good introduction of what’s to come: A fast but technical mule trail with a few tricky bits thrown in for good measure. This single track stretch is over three hours long! Overnight stay in Tachedirt in a basic Guest house which includes cooking area, shower, toilet, eating area and bedrooms.( 20 km day’s journey )
Day Three: Tachedirt – Imenan Valley – Imsker – Tiziane
Following a hearty breakfast and stocking up on energy bars we will proceed to the next piece of mind blowing single track. From Imioughlad village we head through Forest and Gorge. The scenery is amazing if you can take your eyes off the trail! After lunch we head of towards Tizi n’Test (2092m). A steady climb on single track and dirt track for about an hour followed by an overnight stay in Gite with dinner freshly prepared by our Berber chef. (32 km day’s journey).
Day Four: Tiziane – Ouirgane – Amizmiz
Another hearty breakfast and stock of energy bars mixed with single track and piste takes us towards Amizmiz today passing through Ouirgane. Again, the scenery, views and villages you pass through on this stretch are breathtaking and unforgettable. After lunch we leave to one more single track which will take us to Amizmiz where we stay the night in a guest house for the night. 32 km day’s journey.
Day Five: Amizmiz – Wadakar Villages
After breakfast we ride on a steady piste through stunning scenery while we head up from the Oued Amizmiz Valley to Azeghour. At Azeghour we cycle towards Toulkine on the other side of the river on single track all the way to Adghous. From here the trail becomes more technical (loose and rocky) until we reach Tiqlit and pick up a short dirt track to Wadakar. The majority of today is on more technical single track. 30km day’s journey.
Day Six: Wadakar Villages – Asni – Imlil – Aremd
Our final destination today will be Aremd, so after breakfast we head back towards Imlil on more twisting single-track. Less technical and faster than yesterday makes this adventure a real grin factor stuff! Total ride time today is about three hours but it’s extremely worthed. If we manage to squeeze in some more time, we can do another big single-track descent into Imlil, but then climb to the top pass at 2200m. 38 km day’s journey.
Day Seven: Aremd – Imlil – Marrakesh
Pack up the bikes after breakfast, load the 4×4 and off to the hotel in Marrakesh for the day and night. Explore the city and perhaps do a session at a Hammam to help refresh muscle soreness. Dinner and overnight stay in Hotel / Riad.
Day Eight: Departure to the airport of Marrakesh
After breakfast then you have some free time for shopping or doing something at your leisure in the center of city. Back to your hotel to prepare your luggage etc for a transfer two hours and half to the airport of Marrakesh in order to arrive two hours before your scheduled flights.
