    Cycling in Morocco

    Hi, I will be spending a few weeks in Morocco (in and around Fez, Tetouan, Tangier) this June and am wondering if anyone has any experience cycling in Morocco. I know the country well, speak Arabic, have lived there, but never thought about cycling the roads before. It would seem to be an insane proposition seeing that I would scarsely drive a car let alone a bike there. But someone might have had a better experience than I imagine I might have. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    The only thing is it's ***** hot in the desert in June last time I was there Zagora was touching 60C, which is alright if you don't want to be out during a large bit of the day. The Country is stunning so are the people you just have to get used to the idea that you're going to have to say no to 50 carpet sales men a day plus every one else that'll try to sell you everthing including the kitchen sink. the roads are great the town are magical the whole time i was there i felt as safe as houses. It an experiance everyone should have i loved every minute.

    Just as a point of possible interest: The British Cyclists Touring Club runs regular tours there:

    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    Thanks for the link. I think I'll try it alone this time, mostly in the area of Fez and Tetouan (good hills but also hot...). If that doesn't work I'll consider a tour group since there is strength in numbers....
