Riding a motorcycle in the Atlas Mountains

While the High Atlas Mountains with some passes over 3000 metres on some of the back roads that catch the headlines there is a lot more to the Atlas Mountains. The Middle Atlas to the north and the Anti Atlas to the south also offer some amazing riding.

Along the Atlantic Coast just north of Agadir the roads ride there wind up into the middle Atlas through Paradise Valley to the Cascades at Imouzzer des Ita Outanane.

Unfortunately because of the drought the Cascade was dry but the ride is worth the trip in itself. As is the beautiful Cascades Hotel

While most of the roads are bitumanised and pretty well maintained some of the dirt roads were more challenging on a big road bike.

But the views are worth it.

  1. rider marc – Tennessee – Been riding since I was 13. Bought my first new motorcycle when I was 15. Kawasaki, Yamaha, and Husqvarna tech prior to an Army Aviation career that culminated as a CH-47D Chinook helicopter maintenance manager and test pilot. Adventure touring around the United States on two wheels. Current rides are the Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin and a Kawasaki KLX300SM.
