What you'll do

In this bicycle tour, our non profit Pikala, gives you the experience to discover Marrakech in a different way. We train Moroccan youth to give you more insight in the Moroccan daily life and real Moroccan Culture. You will cycle through different neighbourhoods of Marrakech like the historical city centre 'Medina' and the new town 'Gueliz'. On our way we will pass some of the highlights of the city like the Koutoubia, the Kasbah and the Agdal gardens, but even more important is to take you to parts of the city where you wouldn't come normally. You will visit a public bakery and the traditional bathhouse called the Hammam. We will make a stop in the cultural Cafe Clock ( juice and sweets are included in the tour), visit the enormous second hand market and finish with a visit at Zaouia de Sidi Bel Abbès one of the seven Saints of Marrakech. The youth that we train will give you more explanation about growing up in Morocco, the importance of the family and how to deal with religion and modernisation. The tour is a cultural and personal introduction to get a better understanding of Moroccan life. Last but not least, it's great fun!

Cantal

I am the founder of the social educative non profit project Pikala ( i'm originally from the Netherlands). We use the bicycle to give opportunities for Moroccan youth to become a bicycle guides or bicycle Mechanics. Morocco has a very young population but often you do not get to know them when you visit the country. I have trained some talented youth to give tourists a personal introduction into the moroccan Culture and to hear more stories of this new generation of Morocco. In addition to this bicycle experience, we just launched a new cycling adventure: "Desert & Oasis Bicycle tour."
