Route advice - Rekkam Plateau to Azrou
A few weeks back I chimed in on another thread, with a route I had planned for a trip on an F800GS I'm planning from 28 Aug to 31 Aug, and the advice that came back made it quite clear I need to plan a new route! Based on that advice, and a few weeks of reading ride reports, I came up with this;
Day 1: Tarifa - Tanger - Al Hoceima (via the N16)
Day 2: Al Hoceima - Taourirt - N19 to Debdou - R606 to Outat El Hajj - R 502 Boulemane - Azrou
Day 3: Azrou - Zouia Ifrane - Chefchaouen
Day 4: Chefchaouen - Tanger -Tarifa
However, I've still got a few questions.
The first one is to do with the bold section. My maps tell me that's a long
day - 600km, with maybe 200km of that on piste. Ride reports indicate that Azrou and the Rekkam Plateau are really great places to visit, but is that day feasible? I've read a report here
of a group of guys who did Melilla (customs and all) to Beni Tajjite in a single day, around the same time of year, on similar bikes to mine. So I think it's possible....but wanted to check with people who know. In particular, if it is possible, whats the best route from Outat El Hajj to Azrou?
Comments on the rest of the route would be great too. If anyone has any other recommendations for worthwhile detours/sightseeing/places to stay , I'm all ears.
Thanks very much
