This section begins in legendary Casablanca. After spending a few days exploring the city's incredible Hassan II Mosque and feasting on fresh seafood on the Boulevard de la Corniche, the riders will pedal south, up, up and into the High Atlas Mountains to the pink city of Marrakesh. A rest day allows the tired riders to enjoy some of the city's street theatre before they jump back on their bikes and head downhill towards the beach town of Agadir. On the way they stop for a night in the red clay walled city of Taroudannt.
Spinning south the riders now enter the disputed region of Western Sahara, one of the world's least populated areas. On their right the cyclists will see the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean while on their left, they will gaze at the endless arid, expanse of the Sahara Desert which stretches all the way east across the African continent. The section comes to a close in Dakhla, an isolated outpost that features excellent surfing, fishing and a surprising good selection of restaurants and hotels.
