Freewheeling down Ait Mansour in Morocco

I remember standing on my pedals freewheeling down the gorge at Ait Mansour from Trafroute on the Atlas Descent Bike Trip. The sun was climbing into the sky, but there was still just enough contrast in the morning light to allow us to pickout the abandoned Berber village perched on the cliff at the head of the valley. The sound of our tyres crunching over the gravel echoed more and more as we descended and the sheer sides of the gorge rose around us. It is a cycle I could take a thousand times and never be bored.
