All the way through KSA!

As part of Nexus Expedition,  I am glad to share that I was able to complete recently the crossing of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia by bicycle.
Afterwards, Dimitri cycled alone across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, (since Gulnara, as a female cyclist, was not able to receive a visa). - See more at:

My wife Gulnara was not able to join me for this section since as a female cyclist, she was not able to receive a visa.

30 days: Jan 28th - Feb 26th.
2270 kms

23 days spent cycling and 7 days spent visiting and resting.
(3 days spent in Riyadh, 1 day in Hail, 1 day in Al Jaharah, 1 day in Al Ula/Mada'in Saleh and 1 day in Tabuk).

I am very thankful to the Kingdom for having allowed me to make this successful crossing, and for the incredible amount of support it has provided to me along the way.
I am also very grateful for all the friends who have helped me with this endeavor throughout KSA.
This has been a great journey and a memorable part of the expedition.

Thank you all very much!
شكرا جزيلا
