Over 1.5 million Muslims are currently in Saudi Arabia to perform Hajj from countries all over the world – by air, sea, and many from neighboring countries have all come via road. But a group of Muslims have reached the Kingdom to perform Hajj via a very unique route – they cycled!
Eight British Muslims have cycled to Saudi Arabia from UK
The men went on a what they have called a Tour de Hajj” which involved cycling through a number of countries to, both, present Islam in a positive light and to raise money for charity.
