Khalid’s goal was to push himself beyond of his comfort zone. He desired to go through an experience that was out of the ordinary. To both challenge himself and urge others to get in shape. He clearly had a difficult time in the beginning. To compete in a 100k ride, he had to fight hard. However, as the saying goes, “consistency is the mark of the unimaginative!” Khalid had a good reason for it. His stamina was boosted by two months of nonstop riding, which included long rides.

When asked about the extraordinary performance, Khalid admitted that the last 40 kilometres were the most difficult. He went on to say that the most painful part of the journey was going uphill. He was so hot that he didn’t think he’d make it to the finish line. And it is now clear enough to infer that boldness and pure drive are the keys to bringing him what he had envisioned.
