Ibis Cycles – Places We Want to Ride / Morocco
In July 2011 one geordie, Brad Howe, and one Aussie, Jason Krugger, set off on an epic adventure around North Africa on two Mojo HDs.They attempted to ascend and descend the highest mountain in North Africa during daylight in a single day – a feat that has never been done before!

Their journey started in Marrakesh and followed on to the High Atlas mountain range, which is 65km to the South-East and verges the Sahara Desert. Jebel Toubkal stands at nearly 14000ft above sea level. They started from base camp and began their tough and gruelling journey to the top of the mountain.
Despite coming extremely close to achieving their goal, they were forced to end their attempt due to the unpredictable Moroccan weather. Not one to be beaten, Brad returned later in the year to successfully complete what he set out to do and, as far as we know, he set a new world record in the process.
This unmissable trip is a must see, and shows the beautiful landscape of Morocco from a unique perspective that only a few people in the world have been lucky enough to experience.
