    Cycling the Cols of Morocco

    Just to say that, if anyone's worried about safety, I've just got back from a trip to Morocco as a recce, and found everyone I met amazingly friendly and welcoming. The main response seems to be `welcome to our country' and to be only too keen to help. Didn't see any roadies as such, but otherwise loads of bikes (and mopeds) on the roads, and the mountain scenery is amazing. Best tip: work on your French a bit since that is the universally spoken second language, as is how the football's going. If you can manage even a couple of words of Arabic that will be great too.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Watching eagles while traversing across a rockface with a Berber guide. Sitting beside a swimming pool in 35 degrees C sunshine and 5 hectares of gardens, while the swallows dipped for water, and our amazingly kind French Moroccan hostesses arrived with martinis (yes!) from the bar...... Although sadly the carpet my wife bought doesn't fly after all (not so far anyway)

    What did you think of your group leader?

    She was excellent; glad I married her.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    You can actually buy Moroccan dirhams in the UK, which helps, and you are allowed to bring about £200 worth back if you want.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Main roads nicely surfaced, mountain roads a bit patched but very like the French ones. Bring some small notes and coins if you can, since tips are greatly appreciated. Also Imodium and inner tubes.

    Flying carpet trip over the Atlas Mountains

    The Exodus feedback form asks whether any aspect of the trip was disappointing, Aside from purchasing a magnificent carpet which has so far refused to fly, I could think of little. The routes were well planned and provided wonderful climbs and descents on every day. The leaders were professional but relaxed, thoughtful and enthusiastic and took care of a group with a range of ages and abilities. The support vehicles and 'snack stops' were well organised and left us free to enjoy the cycling without worrying about luggage or water. The mountains are very beautiful and the dry warm sunny days allowed us to cycle in short sleeves but without overheating.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Enjoying summit after summit with a great bunch of guys.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Radu Man is professional but relaxed and a great leader who made sure everyone was looked after regardless of age or ability. He was assisted by Liz who was also great. Having two leaders was an important part of the success of the trip.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    The description of '100% tarmac' is hopelessly optimisic. Quite long stretches amount to little more than dirt or gravel and potholes are a regular feature. This should not discourage anyone from taking the holiday but I would suggest the ideal bike is a lightweight gravel bike with disc brakes, decent hill gearing and 28 or 25 tyres of the most bombproof you can find. I rode 25 gator skins and was surprised to last the week without mishap. The hire bikes are of good quality but they are not all triple (as described) and some do not have mountain gearing. November seemed perfect weather for this trip

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    I have probably never written as positive a review of a holiday before but it was really excellent...and no, I have not been paid or asked to write this review!
