To all of You a safe motorbiking season!
We, Stef/Geert from Brussels, have been working on a Morocco-tour
since december, and the more details on paper,the more we are motivated
to start the journey. There's certainly room for more candidates, reason
why added below initial routing and dates.
Interested? Give us a sign and tell You all about it.
Also thanks to Demito, who's report was of great inspiration--------geert
We have intention to arrive Tanger thursday,april 1st at 11h00,morning
with ferry Grand Navi Barcelona-Tanger (24hrs)
Departure for return ferry expected monday, april 12th at 2355.
th: Tanger-Chefchaouen 150km
fr: Chefchaouen-Fez 237 partial offroad with scenic routes and avoiding rif-mountains
sat:Fez-Guercif-Missour 344 sealed road and brandnew from guercif to missour
take fuel at guercif for at least 200km
Fez-Azrou-Middelt-missour is nicer but will be considered on the spot
due weather conditions
sun: Missour-Boudnib-Arrachidia 288 track highly recommended yet not too difficult--fast gravel at first
two dry riverbeds to cross---stretch of sealed road around Tajite---hit
the main road again in Tazzouguert, splendid views, get prepared for
your first camels.
mon:Arrachidia-Merzouga 184 will probably choose for the road via Erfoud
alternative offroad with portions of loose sand/fesfes (duration 2days or more)
tue: Merzouga-Zagora 250 at first n12 and offroad at Tazoulait or Alnif
alternate portion by keeping n12 as unable to confirm my offroad-talents
wed: Zagora-Ouarzazate 190 sealed and very scenic (vallée du Draa)
stayover at "the bikershome" owned by Peter (garage/tools/repair)
thu: Ouarzazate-Telouet-M/kech 210 at Telouet very scenic but narrow roads and many 4x4
fri: M/kech-Agadir via Asni 250 sighseeing guaranteed (Tizi-n-Test)
sat/sunday Agadir-Tanger 900 probably highway all the way
the idea is to drive 400/500kms per day to enjoy a very relaxed evening.
Total distance 3003kms is an estimate of course; i would like to add following:
we have pretty much correct data about gasstations (unleaded) enroute, places to stay overnight.
Priority given on clean sheets and doorlock, aswell as safe parking for bikes.
However playin with idea of taking with me small tent,sleeping gear...
The route is set for 80percent, as a novice i am always in for more offroad
but do not want to spoil my adventure.
nd last but nt least, we welcome our "enthusiasted".... fellow-riders and are
willing to wait a couple of hrs at the border...
Should we be too numerous, we can split enroute, take other tracks etc..
and lookin forward yet for the evening chat...
