Cycling season is here again! But traditional European destinations are now facing competition – from Africa!
Cape Town, the African biking capital, has routes that are open year-round both within the city limits and in the nearby mountains and on the coast. The big bicycle festival Lifecycle Week takes place March 2 to 11.
Whatever you pedal – a city bike in magical Marrakech, a gravel bike in the vast Agafay Desert or a mountainbike in the wild Atlas Mountains – Morocco is a fantastic country to explore under your own steam.
Ride along little-used tracks to the fantastic rock formations, lemurs, baobab trees and snow-white beaches of Madagascar: The East African island is increasingly popular with cyclists.
