We have met before Galal Zekri-Chatila: the 23-year-old Egyptian has been travelling Egypt solo by bike in recent years, promoting positive values and encouraging Egyptians to go outdoors and discover firsthand the beauty of their country.

Demonstrating an exceptionally optimistic and energetic attitude, Galal's motto is, "The challenge is not the road, but rather getting on it." He embarked on his "Egypt on Two Wheels" journey in 2015 after extensive planning, and then covered a distance of distance of 7,000 kilometres in five months, highlighting the unveiled beauty of many places in Egypt and the good-natured spirit of its people.

This time Galal is accompanied by a group of 16 cyclists, including celebrity model Tara Emad and fashion designer Amna El-Shandaweely. The initiative is endorsed by the Ministry of Youth and Sports, The Tri Factory, and 3agal Masr.
