Climate Conference, The Next Record 'End Line' for Biker Ali Abdo
Ali Abdo, the Egyptian adventurer and world record holder in the Guinness Book of Records, is preparing to break a new record with his electric bike. He is scheduled to ride from Abu Simbel to Sharm El Sheikh, crossing Cairo and 27 other governorates.
Abdo aims to achieve the title of the longest trip in the world on an electric bicycle with 20,000 km instead of the current figure of 12.5 thousand km, and the longest journey within one country on an electric bicycle.
Abdo sets off from Abu Simbel temple in the month of September to Cairo around the end of October, which is the first finish line of the trip, to set off again with a group of motorbikes to Sharm El-Sheikh to attend the Climate Summit.
Abdo plans to carry out a number of activities during his trip to educate young people about the climate and the importance of sustainability, through visits to youth centers, schools and universities.
Abdo's journey so far is sponsored by the Ministry of Environment, the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the Prepare for Green initiative, our Earth Climate Foundation for Sustainable Development, and Abdo is currently coordinating with the relevant authorities in preparation for the launch.
