cycling route from Marrakech tot Agadir
our lovely hotel in Marrakech
view from the hotel
suqs in the centre of Marrakech
again, suqs in the centre of Marrakech
the famous square Djamma al Fnaa at sunset: enough food for everyone
delicious food including Moroccan salad, brochettes, olives, bread and couscous
leaving Marrakech in the direction of the High Atlas
after half a day cycling from Marrakech we find ourselves on our own; only now and then a truck or taxi passes accompanied by a smoky and smelly exhaust
this is what we love: cycling with the view of snow capped mountains!
arriving in Taddert
along the road in Taddert; these houses stay surprisingly warm at night
lunch! to get some reserve for climbing the Ticha pass we enjoy a delicious vegetable tajine in the sun
winding road up to the Tichka pass
on corners you will find lots of stuff you can buy: stones, minerals, kitsch, potts and pans (for making tajine)
lots of sun but chilly
beautiful road; fortunately no snow (one week later all the passes weer closed because of snow fall)
It's cold (but not lonely) at the top! We put on all our warm stuff before descending down to Telouet.
Sunset on the road to Telouet. Freezing cold.
Nice hotel with friendly people, warm shower and good food in Telouet. No heating of course ;-)
Beautiful morning! On our way to Anemiter, where the piste is waiting for us.
From Telouet tot Anemiter the road is still kind of paved.
It was freezing overnight, ice is visible on the road and alongside.
From Anemiter, it is one long green valley in the direction of Ait Benhaddou. Small villages and one piste road that goes up and down.
Imagine it were springtime: the valley would be even greener!
Nice piste work!
Time for a coca cola break! A big sign on this building suggested a supply of coca cola and it did.
Complete with a table and 2 chairs and a view into the valley.
