Morocco: Atlas Mountains Raid Cycling Holiday
This five night trip is a great introduction to a new cycling region. We have fantastic local guides to show you the local culture and Sportive Breaks hosts to help you with anything you need. From your arrival in Marrakesh you will have an English speaking guide with you the whole time and a support vehicle. You will see ancient towns, small mountain communities and explore the great city of Marrakesh. But the real draw is the world class cycling over quiet roads in the mountains. We go over two passes above 2,000m, both incredible roads that are as good for cycling as anywhere in the world. Suitable for most cycling abilities, we ride in one group on the flat sections and have van support to make the long days easier if anyone needs it.
