Cross Egypt Challenge

Dear fellow Rotarians,

The members and the board of the Rotary Club of Alexandria Cosmopolitan – District 2451 would like to extend a warm invitation to you and the members of your club to join our Rotary organized initiative, “Cross Egypt Challenge” that will take you on a unique journey throughout Egypt this October.

Cross Egypt Challenge is an international cross-country motorcycle and scooter adventure tour conducted throughout the majestic and fascinating Egypt. This amazing Rotary project started in 2011 for the purpose of promoting tourism to Egypt, and for the past 11 years, Rotarians and riders from over 50 countries took part in this unique and amazing challenge.

The 2023 season of Cross Egypt Challenge will start on October 6, last for 10 days and will pass by Egypt’s top attractions and off the beaten track destinations including Sinai, Luxor, the Red Sea Riviera and the Egyptian Eastern Desert. Participation is open for Rotarians and non-rotarians and their accompanying spouses or friends from around the globe. People who do not ride motorcycles or scooters can also join this amazing adventure and be hosted in air-conditioned chase vans. Cross Egypt Challenge provides a very rewarding and challenging experience for participants from around the globe as it combines the best of adventure travels and extreme sports.

A normal practice we are used to conduct during Cross Egypt Challenge is an annual “Sahara Rotary Meeting” where participating Rotarians along with Rotaracts from our organizing team conduct an official Rotary meeting in the Egyptian Desert – please view the attached image -, a practice that we happily repeat at each new season.

We are happy to invite you, and the members of your club to join the tour this October, be it on a scooter, on a motorcycle or in our chase vans and enjoy a once in a life-time experience (a motorcycle and scooter rental option is available for international participants).
