Willy’s Way

The adventure junket is a bike industry sector gaining in importance. It’s a profit (or loss) center unto itself; and it cements vendor, media and customer relations.  If you want to express to a retailer just how much you appreciate his loyalty, invite him on a cycling vacation, preferably with access to company principals and sponsored athletes. Often these trips feature an ability to ride the latest equipment, sometimes in the proximity of, and on the roads used in, a grand tour. I appreciate when i receive invitations to buy my way into these trips, and I acknowledge the honor. Still, I usually eschew the opportunity, because I don’t like to travel. When I do travel I want the experience to be special, challenging, and unfamiliar. I like to be stretched.

Morocco by MTB

(fotos y texto Paulino Oribe)

Nights were cold, days were sometimes cold and sometimes not. It was late Fall in the Atlas Mountains and it can get mighty cold up there. As you might guess, it can be the abject reverse in Morocco during the summer. The first day ended at 2,300 meters above sea level (just shy of 7600′). We stayed in a set of rock and mud structures at Tizi n’Tazezert. The word “tizi” equates to “pass” in Berber.
