Nigerian man, Kunle Adeyanju, who has been on a mission to ride from London to Lagos for more than 10 days went from Laayoune to Naouadhibour, covering more than 1,000 kilometers.
In a post on Monday, May 2, the relentless rider said the ride would be his longest since he started out on the journey.
Kunle revealed that he got to his present destination two days ahead of time.
He went ahead to say that before going to bed the previous night, he read a book that spoke about the limitations people place on themselves.
After the reading, Kunle dumped his usual routine of setting out by 9 am and instead went out early at 6 am. The man tested his limit all through the journey.
He said it took him almost two hours to cross the Mauritania border. He said he travelled through the Sahara desert all through.
Kunle revealed that when he stopped and wanted to make a video in the desert, solders who passed by him laughed and wondered if he is okay because of the uncanny nature of the Sahara.
Attesting to how very dangerous the place could be, he said he heard voices around him.
IN HIS WORDS: “…THIS IS THE SAHARA! AND IT IS TRUE THE SAHARA IS NOT YOUR FRIEND AND IT DOESN’T FORGIVE NOR UNDERSTAND MISTAKES OR IGNORANCE, IT JUST KILLS YOU! WHEN I STOPPED TO DO THE VIDEO, I KEPT TURNING ROUND BECAUSE I STARTED HEARING DIFFERENT VOICES.”

@victoriousEbube said: “1002 kilometers under 24 hours? That is like traveling from Lagos to Maiduguri.”
@owonatty replied: “Lagos to Maiduguri is 1600kilometers which can be done in 24hrs as well. It all depends on one’s strength and good roads to ride on!”
