    Day 1.316 – Walk Down Agadir’s Memory Lanes (UK)

    Tiznit -> Tamri
    Distance (km) : 149
    Time on bike : 6h 52m
    Brutto time: 08.45 – 18.45
    Avg : 21.6 km/h

    Total (km) : 57.546

    If the day were to have an Indian tribe name, it would have to be Crazy Horse Day.

    I’m flying right from the start leaving Tiznit. The wind’s in my back (or slightly from the right, but still favourable), landscape’s empty and monotonous, traffic’s quite heavy on the shoulderless Route National 1, so no music today as I want to be able to hear vehicles from behind.

    Leaving Tiznit...

    Souss plains south of Agadir...

    In the early afternoon I reach Agadir – the 700.000 inhab. package-tourist hotspot that I visited first time in 1986. My plan as I set out this morning was to chill for a little while in Agadir, eating well, lazing etc. but once there, something spurred me to just keep going north. Though I wouldn’t mind a bit of nightlife action going on, and despite the kind contribution from Luc & Lucia in Tiznit, I felt a bit too anorectic with my money for all the glitter and glamour in Agadir. I have a quick poke at the hotel me and my family stayed 23 years ago (it’s still there!) and soon head off again.

    And I’m in for a visual treat, north of Agadir. Come along…

    Unforgettable Atlantic sunset at Cap Tamri...

    I reach the village Tamri long after sunset, 149 km, but feel surprisingly fine after nearly 7 hours of pedalling. Crazy Horse Day…

    On this day..
