Day 3 - Aït Bouli
After your breakfast, you will be surprised to see that our driver has gone and was changed by mules. Those animals are useful in this remote area without roads or access and you will be surprised by their effeciency. Our new berber friends and their mules will be a precious part of our team for the upcoming days, giving this adventure a unique taste of pure adventure.
But don't worry, even if those mules are faster than us to go up carrying our bikes and bags, they will always be waiting for you on the top of ascent, to let us taking back our bikes to ride down these wild regions. So after three days hicking into some deep valley, we will ride a long and flowy trail to join our next gite.
