Morocco was delightful! Marrakesh was fascinating and the cycling in the Atlas Mountains superb.

I had the best of biking adventure in Morocco. Mohamed and Brahim showed me the Berber culture,food, music and hospitality. I am back in New Jersey but I truly miss Morocco's mountain, rocks, art, architecture, music,food and most of all my Berber friends!
