 For a lesser known cycling destination, with wild hills and views to take your breath away (literally), head to Morocco. Offering some on the world's most staggering beauty and unspoilt routes, this is certainly a country for a holiday on your bike worth bragging about.
 Start your day with a big breakfast at Cafe Clock in Marrakesh and set out towards the snow-capped Atlas Mountains on the horizon. This route starts in the city and takes in a mix of rough roads and trails up to the ski station of Oukaimeden at 2650m. The descent from there to the town of Imlil has to be seen to be believed, breathtaking views and exhilarating trails will keep you yearning for more.

Thanks to Adam and the team at Sportive Breaks for the route.
