If you are looking for a road cycling holiday with a difference, early or late in the season and in a part of the world that see few road cyclists, this is one to consider. We ride a mix of main and minor roads, with only short sections of these roads seeing any weight of traffic. This is a trip for regular weekend road cyclists who will enjoy the challenge of biking around North Africa’s highest peak. This is totally supported riding – at the start of the day, when the group sets off biking, your kit bag will be loaded into the support vehicle and transported to the next overnight halt. Apart from a fixed rendezvous for lunch and regular water stops, you are free to cycle at your own pace, with the support vehicle never far away. This holiday has 7 days of fairly continuous riding, with a daily average of 100 kilometers and close to 1000 meters of ascent and descent. There are 2 short vehicle transfers, the first to avoid a section of potentially busy road and the second to avoid a stretch of unmade road. Accommodation is in a mix of simple hotels, with 1 night in a basic but charming gite. Stunning scenery, atmospheric overnight accommodation and a magnificent point-to-point route make this an unforgettable experience. EXCELLENT BIKE HIRE AVAILABLE LOCALLY.
