Midelt-Erfoud (140 miles approximately)

Published on September 24, 2017 By naomi

In order to cut through the mountains, the French colonial troops (who else?!!!), during the 1930s, constructed the Tunnel de Légionnaire. This created a pass through the mountains to the Ziz Valley below. As the road sweept downwards in a series of flowing bends, a biker’s dream, we could admire the pinkish coloured rock and the fact that the river Ziz had carved it’s way through the mountains creating the gorges below.

Fes-Midelt (Aprroximately 180 miles)

Published on September 22, 2017 By naomi

It was with regret that we left Fes, heading south into the Moyen, Middle Atlas Moutains. Next stop the town of Midelt. The scenery was wild and very beautiful. I understand few visitors explore this part of Morocco, so it remains largely unaffected by all the detritus of tourism. The population, unsurprisingly, is sparse. There were great forests of cedar along with some very desolate scenery.
