Touring Morocco by Bike (6.1): Imilchil – Dades Gorge

Imilchil to Dades Gorge

Imilchil – Dades Gorge

Imilchil – Dades Gorge (142km)
When I climb a hill, I expect a nice view at the top, and look forward the pleasure of going downhill, but if the downhill road is too messy and steep, it would be even more difficult than going uphill. In some extreme cases, I felt lucky because I was not coming from the other side, it is not consider as a hard ride, it is rather impossible. I had a strong feeling in this route, the last time I had the same feeling was at Song Kul in Kyrgyzstan. Every time I told Moroccans that I crossed this place by bicycle, I saw surprise and respect from their faces. ..... See More

Touring Morocco by Bike (3) : Rabat – Meknes – Azrou

Rabat 拉巴特 – Meknes 梅克內斯 – Azrou 艾茲魯

Rabat – Meknes – Azrou

Rabat – Meknes (146km)

There is a highway connecting these two cities, so the traffic of the N6 national road is not much. It is only 2 lanes road, but it has smooth surface and with shoulder most of the time. The height difference is only about 500m for distance of 146km, overall steepness is gentle, except a 300m climbing at a valley after Khemisset, so it was quite a relatively easy ride. .....

Cycling from Chefchaouen to Fez

Chefchaouen – Moulay Idriss Zerhoun – Meknes – Fez

Chefchaouen – Moulay Idriss Zerhoun (186km)
Leaving the blue hill town Chefchaouen, I headed to the south. After riding downhill for about 10km, I was on N13 national road again. Just 25km of ride, I reached Laghdir, where you can find some restaurants. I was so lucky to see a traditional wedding party there. ..... See More

Touring Morocco by Bike (1) : Tangier – Tetouan – Chefchaouen

Cycling Route from Tangier to Chefchaouen

Tangier – Tetouan  – Chefchaouen

Tanger Mad – Tangier (45km)
It took only 1.5 hour travelling from Algeriras, Spain to Tangier, Morocco by ferry. Tanger-Med ferry port is only 40km from the city center, I cycled on the N16 National Road, which, goes along the coastline. I was really unlucky to cycle on this dangerous road in Morocco on the first day, the road was narrow and curvy, the surface was broken, and the worst thing was that there was extremely high traffic because many Moroccans headed to the coast for the beach during the summer. .....
