MEET RASHID ALI
I dusted off my rusty bike 2 years ago after a spur of the moment decision to cycle London to Cambridge as part of a charity challenge. I was surprised and shocked at how forgiving my legs were to me and quickly discovered a natural ability and love for cycling.
Yes, I am cycling from London to Saudi Arabia. It will take me 56 days covering over 100km a day and traveling through 16 countries. To be honest this is the most nerve-racking, challenging and inspirational thing I have ever embarked on. But seeing the children first hand sleeping rough on the streets of Bangladesh and hearing the stories of trafficking and abuse my mind is set and single-minded in raising as much awareness and funds to help these innocent souls.
I’m going to face hard rain, fierce sun, dry dessert and excruciating inclines but I know in the end that if I can save just 1 child this whole trip was worthwhile.
