The Marrakech Atlas Etape Charity Cycling Package.
The Marrakech Atlas Etape Cycling Package has an incredible beginning. Mike McHugo founder of Kasbah Toubkal, Education For All and other great ventures contacted Saif of AXS with his idea of a cycling sportive that benefits Education For All. AXS was going to start doing cycling sportives so a friendship started. Soon after that the Marrakech Atlas Etape was formed. Saif, Mike and others put forth an effort to grow this event……After a couple of years of hard work and fine tuning the Marrakech Atlas Etape has grown for enriching lives in so many ways. It was featured in the UK’s telegraph as one of the six best cycling sportives of 2015. Click here for article. It’s something Mike and Saif are proud of and it’s awesome.

High Altitude Atlas Mountain Cycling Camp
AXS has designed the High Altitude Atlas Mountain Cycling week long camps for riders year around. The accommodating weather of Marrakech allows those to train here when they cannot train at home. We have conducted our cycling camps for the novice to the professional rider. We will gather information from the riders themselves then package a camp that will leave you not only in a better riding condition, but with memories that you will always cherish. High end Giant Road Bikes will be supplied for training or you can bring your own. An AXS support vehicle follows at a safe distance loaded with all natural fruits, snacks, water, and all tools and accessories to make sure you’re ride is never sidelined. Also the AXS support vehicle will pick you up and drop you off at the Marrakech Menara airport. Authentic Moroccan cuisine always an option with the 3 meals a day that will be provided for you. Majestic Atlas Mountain terrain provides views and altitudes found in very view places on earth. With rides going up to 2600 meters we know the challenge is here for those wishing to pursue it. We will have you sleeping at altitudes of between 2600 to 1800 meters and then training between at altitudes 500 to 1000 meters below all depending on your goals. You will increase muscle buffer capacity and submaximal cycling efficiency. Living high and training low altitude exposure enhances anaerobic energy capacity. Come join us and get better. Contact us for pricing on your customized cycling camp.
Testimonials on our cycling camp.
Below are a few words from professional riders from the Starley Primal Pro Cycling Team. These athletes came to train with us for a week here in Marrakech to support our annual charity ride the Marrakech Atlas Etape.
“Last February, I and my Starley Primal team mates travelled to Marrakech, Morocco to train as a team for our up coming cycling season. We stayed up in the Atlas mountains at altitude so that we would gain maximum benefit from training out there. Already marrakech is 500meters above sea level so we didn’t have to go too far to feel the affects of the altitude. During our stay, we checked the route for the famous “Ouka Monster” climb that climes to above 2600 meters above sea level. During my stay there, I managed to clock the fastest time so far of 2 hours 55 minutes from Marrakech to the top. The views were incredible from start to finish. The sheer scaled of the hills was breath taking enough with out actually riding! The hill wasn’t too steep but as you can see from the time, it goes on for quite a while. As you climb higher and higher you feel the air getting thinner. Its not too bad as long as you keep within your limits. When you reach the higher slopes, the scenery becomes more dramatic with an alpine feel to them. Also the drop in temperature is crazy compared to the bottom. All in all i think it was a great route for us to ride. If you get the chance to ride the Atlas atape sportive, I thoroughly recommend it! Just make sure you bring some cool weather clothes for the top!” -Jack Pullar-Starley Primal Pro Cycling Rider
“A few years back i went traveling through Morocco and remember thinking when I passed over the atlas mountains how amazing it would be to ride some of these roads, and just what a perfect training ground it would be, nice quite roads with huge mountains and serious heat. So I could not believe that this is now possible via Argan Sports. The mountains contain some of the largest climbs around with peaks around the 2600 mark, coupled with the Sahara weather and the ability to live up in altitudes higher than 1700 meters its difficult to fault anything with Morocco as a training camp. For days where you have had enough of the mountains just head down towards marrakech or cycle along the valley roads, it just has everything. The biggest positive for me was that not only was this an amazing training camp its also was a life experience. the culture is so different and its a fantastic opportunity to see this first hand, and with the Moroccans being so welcoming makes it that much easier to experience there way of living. I know for certain Morocco will be my first choice for a training camp from here on and I’m sure in a few years time Morocco and the Atlas mountains will be the next craze in training destination, its only a matter of time as when you come out and try you wont find anything to fault it. Thank you so much guys!”
