An Epic Journey To Mecca- By Bike! (SLIDESHOW)

cycling to mecca
Natheem and Imtiyaz take a break from Jordan’s rocky terrain.

Neither Natheem or Imtiyaz are professional cyclists and had to undertake training for the long trek so that they could endure the rugged terrain and any problems thrown at them.

Despite several tire punctures, broken chains and cushion malfunctions they usually managed to cycle 80-100km per day.

  1. an absolutely adventurous way of getting to the spiritual heartland of a muslim.we need more initiatives such as these,connecting with people,leaving cycle tracks/footprints and taking with only memories and pictures.

    Are related to Imtiyaz by any chance? If so, please pass on our best wishes from GreenProphet and let me know how they decide to get back home!

  3. Slms Karin & thanks. Nice idea and connecting the idea with going ‘green’.

    1. It was Arwa’s idea. Credit goes to her… 🙂

  4. If two men can cycle to Mecca, then why not more? People can also cycle to Jerusalem and other major pilgrimage spots around the world.
