Morocco Trip 2017 - Pics


#1

Hello all, 

A few days ago I had the chance to take my bike from Alicante (Spain) to Zagora (Morocco) and back, the trip lasted 10 days. Here are some pictures of the lovely trip. Also a few thoughts. 

  • The landscapes are amazing and full of contrasts, sometimes it feels like riding on Mars.
    - The roads are generally good, you can explore the country on any bike, although I recommend 50/50 tires to make the most of it.
    - Food hygiene is important, however don´t go anal, just follow the basics.
    - Morocco is a safe country, full of police check points everywhere, on big cities follow the same precautions as you would do here. Our bikes were never locked.
    - Kids and livestock are EVERYWHERE, be cautious when riding inside towns or cities.
    - DO NOT handout shitty charity to the local kids (ie; pens, candy, coins), that keeps them of school, and into the roads, look to interact with a local and organised NGO if you really care to make a change.
    - The sun is even harsher than in Spain, avoid dark clothing and bring ventilated jackets, white helmets… I did suffer from dehidration… not nice, carry water at ALL times.  Wear also thermal when tackling the Atlas, 3000m ASL, will be chilly.
    - I will be going back in the future, that country it´s trully a bikers paradise. Like enduro and off roading and getting lost for the sake of it? You can´t  miss it.
