Tic-Toc Maroc: Shipless in Cueta

Chefchaouen to Ronda Spain | October 30 | 198 Miles | Thanks for a little dinner conversation, or perhaps NO thanks to it, we realize there will be a time change (somewhere: border or ferry?) to deal with tomorrow, and that we should leave really early in order to make the mid-day ferry.

Meknes to Chefchaouen | October 29 | 110 Miles | With only one more night in Morocco ahead of us, nostalgia is already setting in, thankfully we returned tonight to a familiar place… but in a different riad.

Bin El Ouidane to Meknes | October 28 | 202 Miles | Well, it was hard to leave paradise, but we tried to drag it out as long as we could with a poolside ride briefing and some dragging of the feet. The weather wasn’t quite right for a morning dip in the pool but we all […]

Tic-Toc Maroc: Choking The American Dream

Marrakesh to Bin El Ouidane | October 27 | 327 Miles | Today had to be the worse day of them all… I mean, awesome because I’m still on tour in a foreign country and doing just fine, but sometimes when you want something so much, hurdles grow up between you and the goal. And that was […]

Ait Ben Haddou to Marrakesh | October 25 | 141 Miles | From one UNESCO world heritage site to another (this tour is full of them, visiting 6 of the 9 in the country!) today was a ton of fun.. and history. The day started with a climb out of the saharan desert, pass towns […]

Tic Toc Maroc: Back In The Game

Boumalne Dades to Ait Ben Haddou | October 24 | 141 Miles | With more than 12 hours sleep, I started out feeling pretty good today, happily.

Tic-Toc Maroc: Chewed Up, Spit Out

Erfoud to Boumalne Dades | October 23 | 172 Miles | Bruised and back on the bike, today was one of the more relaxing days on tour…well, sort of… With only a “few” miles to ride, a scenic side trip, enjoyable (hilarious!) shopping experiences and a “helpful” bike swap… although the collective pain was mounting. Unlike […]
