Biking In the Atlas Mountains

Edit This

If unspoiled moutains, berber villages, and views that you will will never forget appeal to you then I would suggest to anyone visiting Marrakech to take the 1 hour drive from the city to the Atlas Mountains.  Stop along the way and have a tangine, bread and mint tea all quite uniqe as compared to the versions you will get in the city. 

My own favorite way of seeing the Atlas Mountains is by bike.  World class mountain and road biking are availble.  Take the challenge of road riding up 2129 meters altitude to the ski village of Oukaimeden or if you want an easier ride, decend gently down the road leading down through the Ourika valley.  As for mountain biking the mountains are criss crossed the single track that is used by the remote villages to get back and forth to towns. 

You can bring your own bike, rent or take an organized tour, there are several companies that do this.  I would suggest Argan Xtreme Sports, or tel 212 6 222 78 610 as one of the best at these type of bike tours and the best bikes for rental as well.
