Three cycling enthusiasts have just arrived to Nepal on the 6 of May 2013 after daring the tough mountainous roads from Lhasa to Nepal. During their journey, the cyclists crossed the Himalayan Range starting from 3600 meters high Lhasa and through the highest pass in Tibet Gyamtso La (5200 meters) to the Everest North Base Camp (5175 meters).
The Cycle Marathon that started on the 23 of April 2013 took two weeks to reach Kathmandu from Lhasa. The Team of Abraham Cohen, Daniel Moores and Valentina Nelin were extremely delighted upon their arrival in Kathmandu and their successful endeavour. This cycle marathon aims to promote awareness for equality between people.
Abraham Cohen, cycling expert and the mastermind behind the marathon says 'the extreme conditions will attract attention and awareness on the problem of equity in the world… It’s such a wonderful feeling to know that we can travel and explore any part of the world just using a bike '. They were welcomed at the Tevel b’Tzedek house in Kathmandu upon their arrival.
Living the spirit of the cyclists and to promote equality and clean environment, Hanan Goder, Ambassador of Israel to Nepal, joined the team in their adventure in bicycle from Dhulikhel to Kathmandu on the 7th of May 2013. Speaking before leaving for the marathon, Ambassador Goder said, 'this is an incredibly important campaign to promote solidarity and equality between humans. I am proud to be a part of this campaign'.
