Day One: Arrival and transfer from the airport in Marrakesh to our overnight hotel nearby, assembling your bike, a briefing, and an evening meal.

Day Two: On our first day of riding from the Atlas foothills we climb into the high Atlas to finish our day in the high Atlas village of Imlil. (120km with 2250m elevation)

Day Three: We spend our third day in the beautiful Ouirgane Valley below Toubkal the highest peak in Morocco, passing through gorges and climbing into the Atlas and on to the Tizi n'Test one of Africa's iconic climbs. We spend the night on the summit, a night to remember. (102km with 1,670m elevation)

Day Four: As we descend the Tizi n'Test to the Souss plain the view we take your breath away. We then make a left turn to ride across the base of the Atlas towards the oasis town of Taliouine dominated by hills and the impressive Glaoui Kasbah. Taliouine is the African center of L'Or rouge (red gold) - saffron, the world's most expensive spice. We spend the night at a traditional Kasbah on the edge of town. (109km with 853m elevation)

Day Five: We make a memorable day climbing on to the Souss-Massa the Mars-like region between mountain and desert, this ride will stay with you and I cannot wait to ride again through this unique landscape. (160km with 2000m elevation)

Day Six: We make our way around from the city of Ouarzazate, up over the infamous Tizi N' Tichka stopiing in Telouet. (100km with 1600m of elevation)

Day Seven: We descend the Tizi n'Tichka, rolling down the Zat Valley to the Marrakech plain below the Atlas, a magical ride through ever-changing scenery back to Marrakesh. (120 km with 1400m elevation)
