Doha: Qatari adventurer Abdulla Al Hammadi and his French team-mate Pierre Daniel launched their attempt to cycle around the country on Tuesday from Katara.
The duo will cover a distance of more than 500 kilometers to visit a number of schools to create road safety and active lifestyle awareness.
It was an 80-km trip to Al Dhakira, that included a visit to Al Khor International School, but things will get serious during the following three days as they will need to cover 130-160kms every day before finishing their challenge at Aspire Zone on Friday.
“It will be a tough challenge, but we are ready for it. The weather is beautiful and that will help us. After we visited the two schools yesterday and saw how the kids were eager to know more about this sport and our ride, it gave us a lot of enthusiasm, and it was not different today at Al Khor international school. We’re really glad to be doing this to inspire the future generations,” said Al Hammadi.
