JEDDAH: Thirty Saudi Arabian bikers ranked the first place in the Global Biking Initiative 2018 aimed at raising funds for charity and volunteering projects.
A total of 600 bikers coming from 30 different countries around the world also joined the Europe cycling tour.
The cyclists travelled 700 kilometers with their bicycles, from the Swedish city of Gutenberg to Hamburg in Germany, crossing multiple countries in one week.
The Saudi bikers joined the social initiative this year in a bid to encourage humanitarian and volunteering efforts in the Kingdom, to fulfill Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 for development.
