Default cycling in Morocco

I have heard that Morocco is too dangerous to cycle in. Is this true? I was thinking
of going cycling in Morocco next Christmas. Any advice or tips would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Dan

It depends on your level of experience and comfort, I guess. I didn't find it a
problem. People say that kids in towns throw rocks at cyclists, but I never
experienced that. Then again I look plausibly Moroccan from a distance.

Hot hot hot though. You'll go through water like crazy.

Hi,

I cycled with a racebike in Morocco this winter and it was great! Along the coast
it's ok and inland there is not much trafffic... Dangerous? Just ride with caution
and you should be ok. Twice some kids threw stones at me but i am to fast... Have
fun! Any questions then contact me at: [email protected]

Hans.

I haven't been to Morocco for about 10 years now, but it wouldn't be a place I'd
describe as dangerous. As long as you apply common sense, as with all travel, you
should be perfectly safe.

Couldn't agree more - probably one of the safest (and one of my favourite) places in
North Africa, too. A little '3rd, World' but/and all the more interesting for it.

Morocco is definitely the safest country in North Africa nowadays. You shouldn't have
any problem cycling or driving around the country. Although a minimum care is always
recommended when traveling.

Hello Dan - I'm going to be cycling Portugal and Morocco starting late November. I've done a few trips in NZ - if you have any good info on Morocco I'd be grateful if you'd drop me a line!

Morocco, in general, is quite a safe place. Driving is NOT SAFE in Morocco. Now there are some expressways or tollroads, etc where driving is ok. But cycling, as driving, can be hairy with unruly drivers, kids with bikes, burros in or along side the road,`people walking all over the place..... Wind that knocks you over.....
Just a lot of attention is required.

Other aspects of danger???
Some places there had been some kids who were out of order. Hopefully that is being curtailed. Not nice but not exactly, dangerous.

Driving in the cpuntry where thr is little traffic is great. Some peiple have taken buses when it is raining to kid 2 birds with 1 stone...

Have strong legs as there are a lot of mountains in Morocco.....
