This is a short movie of the Atlas Descent bike trip we went on and really enjoyed, last week, in Morocco. It was the second of two Exodus trips during a month’s stay in Morocco – I’ll post some more about our other experiences in Morocco in the coming days.
The bike trip, entitled ‘Atlas Descent‘ is rated ‘5’ on the Exodus Challenging scale, with the explanation “You have a good level of fitness and are looking for a physically challenging holiday. Previous experience is essential for activity based trips.” Indeed, Lindsey and I found it quite challenging at times, and we had only a little previous experience of mountain biking. Thank goodness we prepared a little over the summer. We were the oldest people in the group of eleven, and sometimes it showed…however the group was patient with us when we needed to catch up. I have to say that the other people on the trip were really nice, intelligent and much travelled folk. My opinion of mountain bikers is that they are extremely tough people!
The trip involved four days biking in the Anti Atlas around Tafraoute and Tiznit, and two days biking in the High Atlas. The scenery was wonderful, as I hope you will see from the movie. The food was good, and the guide, Radu Man, looked after everyone extremely well.
