Average daily distance: 45km (28 miles)
No. of days cycling: 6
Vehicle support: 90%
Terrain and route: 75% off road. Approximately 6000m of exhilarating descents with an incredible mix of singletrack, jeep trails and paved roads. There is a fair amount of climbing to do too, but it's all optional thanks to the vehicle support. Rides become harder as the week progresses. A good level of fitness and off road experience highly recommended.
7 nights hotels, some with swimming pools.
All accommodation is clean and functional although the rooms and facilities may be basic and the breakfasts simple.
7 breakfasts, 6 lunches and 5 dinners included.
This trip is classified as off road and graded C - Challenging. 6 days cycling, average 50km/day, 75% off road (depending on how far you ride and which options are taken), 90% vehicle support (except on sections of days 2,4 and optional singletrack sections).
The tracks are mostly vehicle-width with singletrack options available on most days. Trails are generally good dirt and gravel tracks, though sometimes they are rough and rocky, particularly some sections on days 4, 6 and 7.
There are some big climbs (500m+), though these are all optional, with the support vehicles available to give lifts whenever people wish, and of course masses of downhill. A good level of fitness and off road experience highly recommended. Please see the introductory pages of the Cycling Brochure for more important information on classification and grading.
Normal group size and age
Normally. 5 to 15, plus UK leader and local drivers. Additional Moroccan cycling guide for groups of 12 or more. Minimum age 16.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
For any ride at this level, fitness is important. C-grade trips require confidence in your own ability and physical condition. They are equivalent to an extended period of cycling at home. Previous mountain biking experience is preferable, but not essential, for C-grade off-road trips as they will involve some technical riding.
