1,000Km of the Inclusivity ride done and dusted

Ajmal Samual seen on the shores of the Gulf of Bothnia, 20km outside of Narpes. Next stop Vaasa, and then onwards to Sweden.

Yesterday (8th September 2023) I completed the first 1,000 Km out of my 3,000 Km handbike ride through the Baltics and Scandinavia. This I am undertaking as part of my inclusivity rides in order to raise awareness and to spread the message of inclusion all over the world and especially in Hong Kong. It has been quite a momentous ride for me and my support team alike. We experienced each and every type of challenge which could be thrown at us but suffice to say the camaraderie and the team spirit made it look insignificant.

On this expedition I am very fortunate to have Richard Dobson as our official photographer who has been chronicling my journey through photographs and blogs. Special kudos to Richard for e-biking for 1,000Km. Carol Cheung Mark Berger and Rimantas Navickas thank you for all the support and being there at all times.

Following are some fun facts from the first 1,000km :

Total distance covered to date = 1014.59km

Total cycling days = 14 days

Total time in hours biked = 54:09

Total elevation gained in 14 days = 5481 meters

Average distance covered per day = 72.47km

Join the expedition, follow updates, and tag along on this inspiring adventure.
