Nigerian biker Kunle Adeyanju, who rides from London to Lagos, has said that he will set off on another daring journey from Lagos, Nigeria, to Israel’s Mount Everest, and from there, to Tibet, an autonomous part of China.
The adventurer from Kwara State revealed this in an interview with Arise TV on Tuesday. He stated that his goal is to complete his mission by 2024.
Recall that Adeyanju, who set out on an adventure bike journey from London to Lagos on a bike he christened “Eagle” to raise money for the #EndPolio campaign, landed in Lagos on May 29 after 41 days since he departed London on April 19.
Adeyanju, who presented his journey-related experiences, claimed to have traveled 13,000 miles via 11 nations.
He stated that his close buddy’s death from polio two years prior inspired him to join the #EndPolio fundraising ride, and he dedicated the trek to the late friend.
The daring rider added that he would auction his Eagle bike, which he wanted to be in a museum for people to see in the future, and that he had spoken to it during a trying time on his London-Lagos voyage.
He added that when he spoke to the bike, it responded to him.
He said, “You know during the course of the trip, the bike became my friend, my closest companion. I spoke to him and discovered that machines also have soul. We may think they are just metals but they have soul because I spoke to Eagle a lot on the trip and the bike did respond back to me. We communicated.
“It’s going to be disrespectful for me to ride Eagle just as a street bike because he’s done that very big and great thing. It was a teamwork between me and Eagle. So, I’m going to be auctioning Eagle and I hope whoever ends up buying Eagle is going to put it in a museum where people can see. The generation cannot only hear the story but let them see.”
For his next journey, Adeyanju said, “I’m going to buy another bike and do another adventure. My next adventure is going to be riding from Lagos to Israel, just passing through Israel then to Tibet.
“Then, I actually want to ride on a Tibetan plane because that is the highest plateau you have in the world. They say God lives in Tibet because of the highest purity. I want to experience that purity.
“My destination is Everest. I’m going to drop my bike at Everest base camp and try to climb Everest. That’s what I’m going to do with myself in the next two years.”
