Great riding mainly on good quality tarmac with the occasional rougher section. Rides are mostly undulating with a number of optional long climbs and fast descents.There is an ongoing programme of road upgrading going on in Morocco and the quality of the tarmac seems to improve every year . However, there may be some sections of the route on rough terrainer or dirt tracks and for that reason we don't currently recommend the use of drop bar road bikes on this trip.
Our hire bikes for this trip are mountain bike fitted with narrow slick tyres. As the trip is fully vehicle supported, you can cut out the climbs and ride as much or as little as you like.
Southern Morocco enjoys a warm climate from October through to March and although there is always the chance of rain, this is unlikely during this period. It can be very hot during late April and September.
A good level of fitness is required for this trip as there are some climbs, with 21km as the longest.
Normal group size and age
Normally 4 to 15, plus UK leader and local drivers. 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.
In order to provide a more accurate cycle holiday grading system, where a cycling trip falls between two grades we use an intermediate or split grade, for example Moderate/Challenging. Clearly, conditions may differ from region-to-region or month-to-month and as such the information given on these pages is designed to act as a guide to your cycling holiday only. In all cases you should refer to the Trip Notes for further details.
Cycling: Our cycling holidays come in all shapes and sizes; from gentle self-guided trips in the Veneto, to tackling the High Atlas in Morocco, or exploring the length of Vietnam.
Wilderness: Visit the deserts, jungles, plateaux, tundra and mountains of all seven continents, including Antarctica.
Culture: Let Exodus show you a different side to many of the world's greatest cultural attractions.
