TWO DAYS MOUNTAIN BIKING
Mountain Biking in Atlas Mountain : Mountain biking in the High Atlas centres on the two trekking favourites of Toubkal and M’Goun. Toubkal’s main selling point is its’ proximity to Marrakech and while M’Goun is a little more difficult to get to, it can be combines with a spin around neighbouring Jebel Saghro. If you’re planning an Atlas traverse it’s not uncommon for riders to hire a mule to carry their bike over section that are impossible to ride.
