Kit List – Morocco Road Biking Holidays

This kit list is intended as a simple aid memoire to assist you when you’re packing for your holiday.  When packing, please be mindful of the baggage allowance that is applicable with your chosen airline.  However, we believe that it is always better to have gear in your kitbag and not need it than the other way round – this applies especially to wet / cold weather gear.

Please note that your bike should be both serviced and cleaned prior to packing.  We recommend using a soft bike bag or a cardboard bike box for transporting your bike.  If packed correctly both these options offer good protection for your bike and are easily packable in our baggage van.
