Morocco Bike-Adventure 2023

Oct 8, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

65 Morocco Bike-Adventure 2023

Embarking on a journey from Tangier to Sidi Ifni in Morocco, the 4th installment of the off-road route and the 3rd edition of the road route are set to kick off once again from Tangier on October 8th, 2023. The path carved out for riders winds through the challenging terrains of the Rif and Atlas mountains, leading them into the depths of the vast Sahara desert.

The Morocco Bike-Adventure routes unveil the hidden corners of rural landscapes, seldom seen by tourists. This isn’t a ride along well-trodden paths; it’s a chance to witness the untouched beauty of the landscape. Nights might be spent under a canopy of stars, far from petrol station shops. The journey embraces the rugged grandeur of the Rif mountains, the majestic Atlas mountains, and the awe-inspiring Sahara desert.

Sidi Ifni, a coastal gem, marks the journey’s end. From the desert expanse to the rolling waves, the Morocco Bike-Adventure captures the essence of Morocco’s diverse landscapes.

The adventure begins with rider briefing and registration on October 7th, followed by the official start on October 8th at 09:00 from Tangier. The finish line awaits in Sidi Ifni, where the triumphant riders will celebrate at the finisher party on October 21st.

Two categories, solo and pair riders, promise a dynamic experience with no time constraints. The event offers two routes: the renowned PISTE route, limited to 20 skilled bikepackers, and the ROAD route, limited to 30 cyclists seeking extensive distances without the comforts of support.

For the intrepid souls choosing the PISTE route, comprising 2,300km and 23,000m of vertical climbing, navigating extreme circumstances like desert sandstorms or mountain tempests necessitates experience and composure.

Meanwhile, the ROAD route, spanning about 2,400km with 26,000m of vertical climbing, beckons those who relish the challenge of extensive distances in the absence of amenities.

Tangier serves as the starting point, a city that lies just across the Strait of Gibraltar from Spain’s Tarifa, yet offers an entirely distinct atmosphere. This city, once the backdrop for a James Bond film, The Living Daylights, sets the stage for this epic adventure.

As riders journey towards Sidi Ifni, they’ll traverse landscapes that have graced the silver screen and made their mark on the legendary Paris-Dakar rally.

The Morocco Bike-Adventure stands as a remarkable test of endurance – a single-stage, unsupported cycling odyssey that weaves through the heart of Morocco’s mesmerizing landscapes.
