I’ve just booked a weeks cycling tour of Morocco, Southern Oasis Cycling by Explore. All excited, especially as it leaves in 3 weeks!
So, appart from making sure I’m fit enough to cycle approx 50km per day on the 5 cycling days, it was time to look at a suitable capsule wardrobe for the non-cycling times.
Morocco is a Muslim country, so many of my tops and skirts wouldn’t be suitable.
The other challenge is the climate. In February the daytime temperature will be in the low 20s, but dropping in the evenings to possibly as low as 5oC.
To keep the number of items to a minimum I decided to opt for the layering approach, choosing short sleeve tops, that can be worn over a long sleeve thermal top in the evenings. The same approach can be used for light weight long trousers, with thermal leggings.
Limiting my colours, I can then hopefully mix and match a variety of outfits.
