FAQs

Do I need to bring my own equipment?

No – we will provide mountain bikes and helmets. You can of course bring your own bike and / or helmet if you wish but you are responsible for transporting these to and from Morocco. If you are planning on doing this please let us know.

Will I be able to have a shower?

Yes, in Morocco we have showers in camp. We can’t always guarantee the water will be hot – but even a quick rinse is welcome in this environment!

Where do we sleep?

In a beautiful camp with typical canvas tents under the stars.

What do we eat?

Igo will provide your main meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner. Sometimes this will be freeze dried food and sometimes tagines. It is up to you to bring personal snacks, energy bars and electrolytes to supplement your meals on the course. Don’t bring chocolate – it will melt in the moroccan heat!
