Kunle Adeyanju, the Nigerian tourist who rode a bike from London to Lagos, is planning to embark on a fresh trip to Everest.
Adeyanju has been in the news since he pulled off a 41-day London-to-Lagos bike ride to raise funds for charity.
The tourist, who covered about 13,000 km across 11 countries, spoke in an interview with Arise TV.
Adeyanju said he is looking to experience Tibet, the highest region on earth, and Everest, the highest mountain.
He added that he plans to ride from Lagos to Isreal, then to Mount Everest on his next tour.
“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,” the biker said.
“Then, I actually want to ride on 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 doing to do with myself in the next two years.”
Speaking on why he dedicated his last trip to the fight against polio, the biker said his close friend died of the disease.
On his London-Lagos trip, Adeyanju said he would auction his bike which he wished could be put in a museum.
“It’s going to be disrespectful for me to ride Eagle [bike] just like a street bike because he’s done that very big and great thing. It was teamwork between me and Eagle,” the biker added.
“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 it. The generation cannot only hear the story but let them see.”
