Where is Merzoua? . . Few months ago, we were joking in @riverside_decathlon & Cesar – @biking_ginger – challenged me to make a full revolution with the bicycle. The prototype made it bravely to the esplanade in Mecca but wasn't allowed to go inside even though she is Merzoua. That being said I've made seven full revolution with the meter. 😜 . . Zero flat tire and only one chain broken! 👏@riverside_decathlon . And the best watch ever from @arabiancorner made it to el Haram and had experienced the power of revolution. . . #cyclingtomecca #roadtomecca #sacredfootstep #cyclingsaudiarabia #cyclingmiddleeast #welcometoarabia #welcometosaudiarabia #mecca #lamecque #omra #cyclingtrip #cyclingegypt #cyclingsudan
Haba was concerned that she would not be allowed to enter the holy city as she was traveling alone, but she did not let the fear stop her.
Speaking to a source, Haba said, “The distance and difficulty were insignificant in Saudi Arabia as compared to what she went through. Haba was very tense before reaching Makkah as she didn’t know if she would be allowed to enter the sacred city, cycling all by herself.”
Haba was still traveling, when her story went viral on social media, and many people met her on her journey.
Here are pictures of Haba’s Journey
