Mountain Biking in Jebel Saghro: sandwiched between the snow-capped peaks of the High Atlas and the bone-dry sands of the Sahara are Jebel Saghro is the No. 1 destination for mountain biking in Morocco. The landscape is straight out of a Road Runner cartoon with towers of pink rock dominating the horizon. Put simply it’s perfect mountain biking country and with the Dades and Todra Gorges nearby you can get your fill of Kasbahs before seeing if you’ve got the strength to attack the Atlas.Mountain Biking in Central Atlas :South west of Morocco’s backbone lies the Anti-Atlas and a great starting point for anyone new to mountain biking or new to Morocco. Trails are less vertiginous than elsewhere and thread through scenic valleys and Berber villages.
