- Morroco Riding
There are afew folk that have been on here.
We have done 4 trips with various countries. Ciclo Montana are offering a sort of Enduro riding trip with uplifts, others run point to point with a variety of difficulty interspersed with car shuttles.
Have a look at KE Adventure too. We did an Atlas Traverse, 700 odd km of brilliant riding over many sorts of terrain and singletrack. Loved it. The guide was brilliant and it was a cultural immersion as we stayed with families en route..
Happy to help if you need more info..Posted 4 years agoskellnonchSubscriber
Yes, if you are after a real taste of morocco & some epic riding you wont go far wrong with them, it’s a proper road trip you get dropped high in the atlas then ride from village to village staying in local houses & eating Tajines (very tasty). Simon the guy who runs it is a top bloke, used to run Freeride Spain in the Sierra Nevada, been on a couple of those trips too, always good testing riding & great company.Posted 4 years agopinetreeMember
+1 for Freeride Morocco. I went out with them last september, and it was brilliant.
Don’t expect 1st class accommodation- it is very basic, but that’s reflected in the price.Posted 4 years ago
Oh, and make sure to take up the offer of the Hammam on the 3rd night (i think) It’s f**king brilliant.mtbtomoMember
+2 for Freeride Morocco and Simon who runs it.
Its a point to point tour with all your gear transported, staying out in rural areas with villages on dirt tracks. Riding is a mix of rocky technical descents and a few fire road / road sections to get to the next village.
As per previous comments, accommodation is basic – but that’s part of the experience.

Went with KE in 2006 on Atlas Traverse as sold on “Sinuous Singletrack”, lol, everything but!
Spent days riding roads, double tracks, then had to walk bike down donkey tracks due to size of boulders etc and I’ve ridden Alps, Pyrenees, Rockies…
Very detailed itinery of what to take etc but guide lost client, had poor bike which meant he couldn’t ride sections, very poor hygiene, everyone in group got squits at some point on trip.
Culturally and visually a stunning place to see but I’d never go on a KE trip again.Posted 4 years agomtbtomoMember
There is an itinery on the Freeride Morocco website. IIRC, one of the guys on our trip clocked 125 miles and 25000ft of climbing for the week. There was obviously a lot of descending too!
Simon and the local guide had a good knowledge of the area. We stopped in a different gite to the one planned on one night so that we were off the bikes before it rained. It was good professional guiding and organisation.
And the guys who cooked the food too should get a mention because it was absolutely plentiful and very tasty! (freshly cooked lunch too out of the back of the van everyday at a meeting point out in the hills)Posted 4 years ago
