WT: Cycling in Morocco - Youssef Boucetta
About 1/2 a year ago, whilst going through the Facebook groups, I met a young cyclist-to-be-Expeditioner named Youssef Boucetta. This guy is really cool, as I can say he will approach anyone and everyone interested in cycling, expeditions, bicycle touring, or those whom have devoted a great deal of their life to two wheels. I've been fortunate to become friends with such a great guy in Morocco, even though I have never been there or any place on that corner of the globe. Well, recently Youssef got handles on a new digital camera, an ace to his advance to sharing his goodwill message from Cycling in Morocco, and I wanted to share his recent work here on Korean-World. Although my site began as a space for my ESL teaching experience, it's now evolved, sharing the Cycling Spirit that forms a strong collective of riders around the world. I hope to experience the full-intensity of a ultra-distance cycling expedition , the time I will set aside to ride ONE, from the Arctic to Argentina in 2012-2013(32,000km, more about that over here). Ok, back to Cycling in Morocco...brought to you by Youssef Boucetta, a new name, one that will become familiar in Cycling groups, when this lad launches into his own World Expedition in the future. Until then, he's got a whole world to discover in Morocco, as I have found in South Korea. Look around you, the adventure is really right there where you left it, pick up yourself, pack your gear, and ride!!! - Brian Perich, writing from a small apartment in Siheung, South Korea.
About the Korean-World Author
Brian has completed his second mountain bike journey, MongoliaX expedition - Crossing Mongolia 2012, an unsupported mountain bike MTB expedition across 2500km of Outer Mongolia from Ulanbaatar to Altai Taven-Bogd National Park bordering China, Russia and Mongolia.
In 2013, as a sequel to a trilogy of cycle tours, Brian enjoyed a more leisure bicycle tour onboard his Koga-Miyata World Traveller seeing the northern tier of the United States and western Canada covering 3400 kilometers / 2000 miles in 30 days. This North American cycle tour was called Totherocktour. Enjoying the adventure of bicycle travel and every great conversation started while traveling on the road - has refueled his inspirations to cycle around the Earth. In 2013, while he cycled solo from the Great Lake State of Michigan, United States to Banff National Park in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. He weaved through local communities and reconnected with friends, family and community after spending almost a decade in Asia.
Brian is now supporting several non-profit foundations through expeditions: IDEAS Foundation of Canada IDEAS is the acronym for Intestinal Disease Education and Awareness Society which supports the IBD community, those suffering from IBD-inflammatory bowel disease, also known as Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis.
