Tours

Cyberconte
by Camille Szklorz, tour started 2012, submitted 11 July 2013
language: fr

A solo trip which started from Paris to West Africa in October 2012. And also an audiovisual project on new technologies and DIY in Africa, focusing on how creativity can emerge from a lack of material. A roadtrip project through several countries - from geographical deserts to digital deserts, from high tech to DIY technology, from cities to remote areas. An immersion of several months into the daily life of locals where unexpected resourcefulness lies alongside high technology.

Now in Guinea for the rainy saison and heading towards Ivory Cost.

- CYBERCONTE est un voyage à vélo - de la ville à la brousse, des déserts géographiques aux déserts numériques, du high tech au systhème D. C'est un projet consacré à une culture numérique émergente au Maghreb et en Afrique de l'ouest.

À travers ce projet, il s'agit de donner à voir une certaine créativité numérique et technologique.

Greedy Euro Bike Tour
by Marco Bacchin , tour started 2012, submitted 9 March 2012
language: en, it

Da lì a là is an Italian expression meaning roughly hither and thither, and this summarize my will, my restless temper of changing place every so often. I'm biking around Europe stopping from time to time when my attention is captured by an outstanding recipe a traditional food or a weird one. Pedalling alone is just fine, but together with other cyclists, especially from the country I'll be riding at the moment is just fantastic: less fatigue, more fun. You can get a look at the Euro-Tour map to get a gist of what'll be the route I'll follow in this year. If you're biking in the some zone, or nearby or you're going to start something similar and you'll like to have a ride together, let me know. Get in touch! Sys

We are shortly going to start an expedition from South Africa to the UK via the African West Coast. We have a challenge: my partner (soon to be wife) has never ridden a bicycle before. But she is confident she'll make it.

Two oldies going on a long bicycle ride
by Lynne Roberts, tour started July 2008, submitted 21 October 2011
language: English

Twenty years ago we cycled half way round the world, so we thought we'd better have another go before we get too old to do ANYTHING, let alone cycle!

So after 4 months in Europe (the training ground) we hit South India, then a quick hop over the ocean to South East Asia. When we were Asia'd out we decided to go to South America, via the UK (planning is NOT our forte). From Venezuela we headed south to Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia from which we headed back up to Central America (remember what I said about planning?) to meet up with friends and family. This took approx 2 wonderful years. I wonder where we'll go next time?

Tamazight; a bicycle journey in Morocco
by Blanche, tour started 2010, submitted 30 January 2011
Africa: Morocco

About 11 years ago we fell in love with the country and the Imazighen, the people of the Tamazight. We fell in love with Morocco. Since then there is a spell resting on us and we have to return when ever we can.Tamazight is in fact the name for the Berber language spoken in the Middle Atlas but it is also widespread used for all the other berber languages. Imazighen 'free men' is the name for the berber people. This film is about one of our bicycle journeys as free men in Morocco through the Anti Atlas, the desert and the coast around Sidi Ifni.

Summer cycling from Hungary to Morocco and across Canada
by Alfred Maleczki, tour started 2006, submitted 28 March 2009
language: hu

A lonely Hungarian cyclist who has the Summers free and likes to make new advantures on his bike.

Started with his short Croatian tours, but made it always longer, and in 2005 didn't stop before the 2700th kilometer in Greece. In the following year he decided to start the real adventure, to cycle out of Europe.

2007 was the year of cycling across Canada, the headwindy way - of course :) After this 9000km trip now he is in the planning stage of the South-American tour for 2009.

Atlas mountains, Morocco
Cycle tour of High Atlas, Anti-Atlas and coastal region of Morroco
by Chris S, tour started February 2009, submitted 21 March 2009
Africa: Morocco

'I stepped out of the plane and out of my comfort zone into the sunshine at Marrakech airport. I was nervous and unsure of what to expect from the first African country I'd visited.

I wasn't ready for the dusty roads and the skinny donkeys pulling those heavy carts. The unrendered buildings, the traffic chaos and potholes, the flat lands leading to the High Atlas mountains. My only comfort was the reassuring feel of the bike that I was riding. I felt every bit like the naive western tourist that I was.'

This is day one of a 17 day cycle tour of the High Atlas and Anti-Atlas mountains in Morocco, taking in the coast between Tiznit and Essaouira along the way....

Morocco -- bicycle tours of two piciclisti who only have bikes in their mind.
by Pinar & Paolo Pinzuti, tour started April 2008, submitted 9 July 2008
Africa: Morocco
language: en, it, tr

Without renting an apartment in Milan, without packing our staff in the boxes in Nuremberg, just before we move from Germany to Italy we decided to take the opportunity to make a holiday between our ex-job and the new one. We made a bike tour for three weeks in Morocco. We chose Morocco for the holiday because of the good experiences Pinar made on her visit in 2002, the well known hospitality of Moroccan people, the suitable weather and the famous Atlas Mountains.

Marokko
by Conrad Philipp, tour started February 2007, submitted 31 March 2008
Europe: Morocco
language: de

Erst hatte ich vor, die Tour-de-France-Strecke (einmal rund um Frankreich) abzufahren. Aber für dieses Vorhaben konnte ich keinen begeistern. Als zu strapaziös wurde mein Plan bezeichnet. Ich war mir mittlerweile selbst nicht mehr sicher gewesen, ob eine komplette Runde nicht zu viel für mich ist. Ich plante also um. Es entstand die Idee, zum Tour-de France-Finale nach Paris zu fahren. Stilecht sollte die Fahrt von unserer Haustür [in Jena] starten. [...]

Wir hatten nun acht Tage Zeit, bis nach Paris zu kommen um Zabel, Ullrich, Armstrong ... zu sehen. Mehr als 1000 Kilometer lagen vor uns. Die gnadenlose Sommerhitze forderte ihren materiellen und körperlichen Tribut.

Biking around the world
by Andrew & Friedel, tour started September 2006, submitted 12 March 2007

We're Andrew & Friedel Grant - two Canadians who, after living in the UK for 6 years, have set off to travel the world by bicycle. We had no previous bike touring experience when we began, having really only gotten into cycling at the start of 2006, and when we say we ``got into cycling'' that means short commutes to work along flat cycle paths and the odd day trip, that usually ended up at the pub. We're still not quite certain how that translated into the situation where Friedel said ``hey, let's bike around the world'' and Andrew said ``sure, why not''. The first leg of our tour was in Canada, then through Europe to Morocco. We will keep cycling around the world; hopefully next towards eastern Europe and the Middle East.

Wonderful Maroc!

I started my cycling holidays in Maroc. After traveling a great part of the world and to Maroc two times by bus and one time by hired car. I hoped there was something better to do it, and there was....the bicycle. Since then the cycling-bug got me and I visited more countries on a bicycle.

On my windows webspace the route and the pictures tell the story of a few bicycletrips in Maroc. Enjoy!

Our trip around the world - we are now in Cambodia
by Benoit Cote et Genevieve Fortin, tour started 2006, submitted 1 November 2006
language: en, fr

We are now in Cambodia, after 10 months of cycling thru New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia, Thailand. Our site is bilingual.

Our web site is about the trip that we are now realizing. We have gone across the world to go back to Canada. We already crossed 5 different countries in 10 months. We will keep biking for around 2 more years. The subject treated by the web page is mostly about our trip (story, pictures, organisation) but we added a lot of other stuff like recipes, rock climbing, and small articles. We are French-Canadian, so our web site is belingual.

Rock the Casbah
by Erik Nomden, tour started April 2003, submitted 6 May 2006
Africa: Morocco

The landscape is completely flat. There is nothing at all, nothing but stones. And sand. Although there is nothing to see, the emptiness has its own beauty. There is a quietness coming over me despite the harsh circumstances. All the problems and possibilities of life seem to dissolve in the infinity of the landscape.

From Marrakech, we have cycled across the Atlas into the Sahara. In two intense weeks we learned to know a bit about the many faces of Moroccan society and we were able to explore the extraordinary Atlas-Sahara region.

Southern Morocco by Bicycle - a solo journey
by Mike Hayes, tour started December 2005, submitted 12 April 2006
Africa: Morocco

This is my own personal diary from a solo trip I made by bicycle around Southern Morocco over Christmas and New Year 2005/2006. My bicycle tours invariably seem to turn into wild and woolly adventures involving deserts, mountains, extremes of weather... and fantastic experiences. This trip was meant to be a little less 'epic' in nature, as such all the camping gear was left at home in favour of guesthouses and pensions though I did fill the space to a degree with a lot of cold weather gear and my sleeping bag - fortunately as you'll see! It worked out well, though the terrain and weather proved to be no less extreme than past adventures and events did not quite turn out in accordance with my admittedly very rough pre-trip plan.

This, my second visit to Morocco, only served to strengthen the memories I have of the country as being populated by overwhelmingly hospitable people and blessed with some of the grandest scenery on the planet.

Julien & Titus' Cycling Trip, 12195km in Europe
by Julien Dymetryszyn, tour started March 2001

[Titus is the bike] - 12195 km in 8 months through France, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, England, Wales, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Scotland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Austria, Italy and Greece - includes travelogue and many fine pictures

I've travelled quite a bit through the years, hiking on foot, by car, bus, plane... But cycling is just the right speed. Fast enough to actually get someplace, yet slow enough to smell the flowers as you go... Plus, it's the only mode of transportation where the engine actually improves with usage... Anyways, a friend lent me this book about a couple who spent a couple of years cycling around the world and I thought to myself that I wanted to do that ! So, off I went ! Well, I didn't quite make it... After 8 months on the road, I came back... Mostly due to homesickness, but I should have expected that, particularly on a solo trip...

Mid-morning after leaving Santillana [in Northern Spain], I take a break after a long cycle uphill and watch the progress of this little fellow... That's exactly how I felt... slow... but steady!

From the moment we started, we knew this was going to be a holiday with a difference. Maybe it was the envious looks we got from British cyclists on the way to Heathrow, or maybe it was the stares from shocked Spaniards as we did a sudden strip-tease beside the baggage reclaim in Madrid, revealing if not our true colours, then at least our lycra-clad limbs. Full of gorgeous pictures well worth waiting for...

Mountain biking around Tafraoute
by Tracey Maund and Colin Champion, tour started March 2004
Africa: Morocco

We spent the first week of March 2004 cycling to, around, and back from Tafraoute at the western end of the Moroccan Anti-Atlas. We had been there before, trekking with Exodus in late 1992.

This time we flew to Agadir and on the following morning took our bikes by minibus to Aït Baha, from where we rode on to Tafraoute. We spent 3 days cycling around - largely on pistes - and then rode to the Col du Kerdous, perched over the coastal plain. An easy descent took us to Tiznit, and we returned to Agadir by taxi.

We stayed in upmarket hotels, booked from England by telephone and confirmed by fax. Route-finding was never much of a problem, but it helps to have some acquaintance with the Arabic script since many signposts on tracks and minor roads have no Latin transliterations. We took a GPS unit with us but could have got by perfectly well without it.
