Wife and I rode in the Atlas Mountains outside Marrakesh Morocco a few days ago. Interesting terrain. Shitty bikes.

Did Moab Mag 7 last weekend. We were told it was a 20 mile blue. So we were prepared for like a 2-3 hour ride, one guy just had two water bottles. Really flowy the first 12? miles, nothing to hard at all. Could just rip it, but still had fun. Pretty crowded, but only had a few trail plugs. We didn't start till maybe noon.

Then we got to an intersection and one guy not in our group was like "If you go that way, you better plan on another few more hours and have plenty of food and water. We were like "Yeah, whatever. That's what our GPS track says to do"

Fuck he wasn't kidding. It goes all the way to the ridge that overlooks Arches and it's an up and down fucking double black diamond. Intersects with the Poison Spyder off road trail for a bit. At least I did. There's blue paint, white paint, yellow paint. Couldn't figure out the difference. But one of them brought me straight into some KJs climbing up a ledge and I just had to drop down next to their door. Like 5 miles of fucking boulders. Some pretty big drops. The ends with a steep decent down to the river with some sections that have signs that say "Walk your bike over the next rock. People have died here. People like you." We all ran out of water before we even got to Gold Bar Rim, bonked hard with no food. Shit. We were dead. That section made Porcupine Rim and Captain Ahab look like a dirt road.

I'd like to try that trail again. The Gold Bar Rim, Portal, down to the river section specifically. But I'll start at 7am and come prepared so I am not zonked to shit and can actually ride it.
