With young trained bicycle guides you will discover the original oasis of Marrakech. With the bicycle we can follow off-track roads trough this exceptional environment of the oasis passing different landscapes. We will discover the ways the community survives in these difficult geographic circumstances by visiting the traditional water system, having a small tour in an ecolodge where traditional building techniques are used and by having a stop at an old factory producing 'tadelakt' . Meanwhile we will offer you some survival tip & trick how to survive in dessert and we have picnic with a beautiful view. You will learn and discover about this culture, how precious water is and the holiness of the palmtrees that are of major importance for the oasis.

I am the founder of the social educative non profit project Pikala ( i'm originally from the Netherlands). We use the bicycle to give opportunities for Moroccan youth to become a bicycle guides or bicycle Mechanics. Morocco has a very young population but often you do not get to know them when you visit the country. I have trained some talented youth to give tourists a personal introduction into the moroccan Culture and to hear more stories of this new generation of Morocco. Issam Facil and Khaoula El Haidi are representing the new moroccan generation!

It develops local involvement through education programs focused on mechanics and road safety; it offers job opportunities for youth as bicycle guide, mechanics and bicycle-courier and last but not least, it introduces environmental awareness through workshops, seminars and events.

The ecolodge is an exceptional place to visit in the oasis and it won the first price as sustainable-tourism initiative in 2016. The traditional houses in Morocco are all made of the earth. In this lodge they have been experimenting by using traditional techniques with modern architectural aesthetics with a stunning outcome. We will be enjoying tea and homemade cookies in the shade of the garden. During the bicycle tour we'll make various stops.
