“Great day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Took a family trip (19 year old and parents) with Martin around the coast of Sidi Kouri near Essasouria, and then inland off-road. Great way to see the countryside, thoroughly enjoyed our day out. We cycle a bit back home, and managed a tour of around 30km, but Martin siad that he judges the distance and pace to suit he group. Good day out away from the souks!

“Highlight of Essaouria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2011

My partner and I found Martin using Trip Advisor when we had a day to spare in Essaouira. Instead of doing a generic camel/horse ride we decided to do something different.

We don't cycle regularly and have limited experience mountain bikes but Martin tailored a trip just for us which was great.

Martin provided us with great bikes and a trail which was suited to our level of fitness. We found it quite easy to start with so he offered a more difficult trail which lead down to a beautiful beach nearby. It was a great experience riding through the countryside and seeing the traditional way of life, away from the cities.

Once we made it back up a rather challenging hill we had an amazing traditional Moroccan lunch in the house of a nearby family. We were treated to copious amounts of mint tea, delicious food and amazing hospitality.

Our day on the bikes was one of the highlights to our trip to Morocco and we recommend Bled a Velo to anyone. In fact it's worth going to Essaouira just to go for a ride with Martin.

“Just fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2011

In the Region of Essaouira there are magnificent Off-Road tracks. To discover these by mountainbike is just fantastic. Martin Rousson from Bledavelo seems to know this region quite well and allthough i often thaught to be completly lost we got to find the planed route.
I do certainly recommend to all who are enthusiastic about discovering the hidden maroc to try such an experience!!
