The Meeting Point.

Kasbah Street

The royal Kasbah quartier is one of the oldest parts south of the Marrakech Medina, only 15 minutes walk from the Jemma El-Fna (the main square in Marrakech). It is famous of its wide, lit streets different from the very narrow alleys in the souks. It can be accessed by vehicles from Bab Agnao or by foot from Bab Laksiba. Coming from Bab Agnaou, we are on the left side of the street 100 meters away from the big shopping Complex Artesanat. 

 

Question & Answer

Do I have to book the tour in advance?

​Yes, please! Booking in advance will give us time to arrange all the necessary details for your tour. There is also a chance we may not have space, so booking in advance guarantees that you get the best day and time for your schedule. We will do our best to accommodate last minute reservations whenever it is possible.

 

What time should I arrive for the tour?

We ask that our guests arrive no later than 15 minutes in advance of the start time of their tour. The tour guide will introduce themselves to each guest and give a briefing of what to expect on the tour.

What is your cancellation policy?

Should I tip my guide?

Tipping is not required, but it is very much appreciated. As in other service-based industries, tipping is a sign that you received great customer service. Your guide will be very grateful.

 

What kind of bicycles do you use?

We use Velo Tout-Terrain bikes, more commonly referred to as VTT bikes. They have seven speeds and are built for comfort. They are the perfect bike for this type of casual bike ride. Every bicycle includes a basket or handlebar bag for small personal items.

Can I bring my own bike?

You can absolutely use your own bike on the tour. All we ask is that you mention this when making your reservation. You will receive a discount of 20% off the price of the tour. Please note, we do not guarantee we will be able to do any bike repairs on any bikes that are not ours.

Can I bring my kids on the tour?

Children cannot only join our tours but also get our special discount of 10%. Any children 16 years and younger will need adult supervision. We have a co-pilot bike trailer that will go on the back of the adult’s bike for kids that are too small to ride a bike themselves. When making your reservation, please mention your children and their ages.

What happens if there is a problem with the bike while on the tour?

Your safety is our biggest priority. All of our bikes are inspected before each tour to make sure they are in great working order. Our tour guides do have a basic knowledge of bike maintenance and will carry some tools to fix small technical problems such as flat tires and brake or light issues. If there is a major problem with a bike, we will contact our office and a replacement bike will be sent.

 

What if I haven’t biked in many years?

You do not need to be any type of athlete or have special cycling skills to participate on a bike tour with us. You only need to be in reasonable physical shape and have the ability to ride a bike. Our guides will set a relaxed pace for all guests’ comfort and safety.

 

What form of payment is accepted?

For online booking, the only form of payment currently accepted is through paypal. We do accept cash payments if you make the reservation at our office. Full payment is required at time of booking.

About Us

"I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood , and I -

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference." 

Robert Frost

100% Green- Marrakech Green Wheels

Alongside our commitment to the environment, we also have a commitment to serve our community. We will be giving 0.5% of our income to educational programs through partnerships with schools and workshops for children. Our purpose is to invest in the protection of the environment for future generations through education. To learn more about our community outreach and goals, please click here​.

 

Our commitment to community also includes making it possible for everyone to experience a bike tour with us. We are working on making all of our tours accessible to people with disabilities.

Our Community

Our Story

-

In the past 10 years, Marrakech has seen a noticeable increase in the number of cars and mopeds on its streets. Pollution has become an ever increasing issue. People are suffering from asthma and allergies due to the poor air quality.

 

Children in rural areas around Marrakech are facing a problem of access to school. Every year, the number of students dropping out of school is increasing due to the lack of a proper means of transportation. The only option for many students is to walk many kilometers to reach school, and when they arrive, they are tired and unable to concentrate. Some parents are prohibiting their daughters from attending the classes because they do not want them to walk. Dropping out of school is always the consequence.

But every problem has a solution.

            

We want to introduce an alternative mode of transport to the people of Marrakech: the bicycle. Biking is a new way to experience Marrakech, all while helping the environment and promoting a healthy lifestyle.

 

Our community needs to be made aware of this issue and how to combat it.

 

Our Mission

-

We want to empower and educate the people of our community to take an active role in protecting the environment and to promote healthy lifestyle choices.

Our Vision

-

Marrakesh Green Wheels Association is making a commitment to the city of Marrakesh. We lead educational workshops in schools to teach kids about making smarter choices to conserve and protect the environment. We also go over the health benefits of a more active lifestyle. These workshops are also designed for adults, that will be offered free of charge.

 

In rural areas, bikes are the main means of transport for children to get to school. A popped tire or broken brakes means a child is absent from their classes. We want to go into these communities and provide free bike repairs. Children and adults will also be taught how to do basic bike repairs themselves. Our long term goal will be to provide bikes to children in these rural communities. By educating the children of today, we are supporting the next generation of adults in Marrakech and by protecting the environment of today we are preserving the environment for the next generation.
