Egyptian adventurer and environmental activist Ali Abdo set a new Guinness World Record for the largest distance covered on an electric motorcycle in 24 hours. Roaring through the city of New Alamein, Abdo covered a distance of 920 k, on a closed eight kilometre long road, which he repeated 113 times.

The record-setting stunt was organized by the Ministry of Environment, and the Ministry of Youth and Sports, following an invitation from the Live Green Initiative to raise awareness of the use of clean energy and dispel the doubts people may have about electric vehicles.

This isn’t Ali Abdo’s first record-breaking rodeo. In 2017, Abdo broke the world record for longest distance covered by motorbike in 24 hours, crossing 613.59 km in El Gouna.
