For all cycling enthusiasts in good physical condition who are looking for a challenge where both their physical and mental condition will be tested. The challenge starts in Ouarzazate and continues along the Atlas Mountains to finally arrive at the dunes of Merzouga. Along the way we drive through canyons, palm valleys, salt lakes and desert plains. The population in these remote areas is very friendly and welcoming, the climate is very diverse. Cold in the mountains and hot in the desert. The trails are of exceptional beauty and the many rocky mountain landscapes breathtaking.
