They started from the East London Mosque in the United Kingdom. They will bike through France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Greece.

From Greece, they will travel by ship to Egypt and finally, Saudi Arabia. This is due to security reasons.

They intend to raise £1m for victims of the Syrian war. The trip, which should last for six weeks, is expected to be over 2,000 miles.

In Nigeria, a deadline for payments has been fixed by the Kwara Pilgrims Board.

Hajj will begin on August 30th and end on September 4, 2017.
