Cycling from Tanger to Essaouira in Morocco over the Atlas mountains. Start where the NorthCape-Tarifa adventure finishes, about 17km south of Tarifa in Africa.

The rules for the Morocco Bike-Adventure are simple and largely self-policed. The rules attempt to embody the spirit of self-support and fairness for all riders.

That’s the Morocco Bike-Adventure, a single-stage, unsupported,  cycling adventure across Morocco.
