Spain / Morocco Enduro Tour

Morning All.

I am very keen to build off road exp. and had a good experience with a company in Spain last year. That said the process was out and back rides with a bit too much road for my liking and I am looking for something longer and more challenging - up to 4 or 5 days possibly including desert riding.

For convenience I am looking for a 'full supply' source IE bike / all gear etc.

I have been in touch with Motoadventure who came well recommended but sadly their 'Mini' Desert Tour 18 Apr 14 - 23 Apr 14 is unavailable due to lack of numbers. So...

A) Are you free and interested in contacting Motoadventure to coerce them into running this tour - I have spoken with them at length and they only need 3 other committed riders apparently - message me and we can sort it out!!!
(they are offering a small discount off advertised price if we can make this happen too)

Moto Aventures SL : Mini Mountain & Desert Tour - 2014

or

B) Can you recommend any similar 4-5 day tours that are based on riding point to point with over night stops rather than out and back in Europe or Morocco?

Thanks in advance!

Braddan.

I was in the same position as you. I was looking at the tour in late April. Since they weren't running it, I contacted Wilderness Wheels. They are based in the same town- Ouarzazate. They have a tour from April 26-30.
