Video: The Atlas Mountain Race Preview1 min read

Fresh from the creators of the Silk Road Mountain Race comes the first edition of the PEdALED Atlas Mountain Race. The new event will kick off February 15th, 2020 and will cover 1,145 kilometers of self-supported, off-road riding through Morocco.

The first edition of the PEdALED Atlas Mountain Race will follow a 1145 kilometre route through Morocco, with roughly 20,000 meters of climbing. It will take riders from Marrakech to Sidi Rabat, a village south of Agadir on the Atlantic coast.

The route winds its way through the remote mountain landscapes of the Atlas and Anti-Atlas mountains. Riders will need to get a stamp in their brevet cards at each of the three staffed checkpoints at Telouet, Aguinane and Ait Mansour before reaching the finish line.

The race takes place essentially entirely on unpaved roads where possible. It’s rough, remote and beautiful, with every kilometre well earned. There will sometimes be great distances between resupply points and some walking will be required.Experiencing the incredible landscapes of the Moroccan Atlas as well as the warmth and hospitality of its people will surely be an experience that will leave a lasting impression on anyone who takes part.
