"Cross Egypt Challenge"
Dear fellow Rotarians around the world,

As we are marching into the new 2019-2020 Rotary year, the Rotary Club of Alexandria Cosmopolitan - District 2451 – Egypt is wishing you a joyful new Rotary year. 

We are also happy to renew our invitation in this new Rotary year to you and the members of your club to learn more about, and share our Rotary organized initiative, "Cross Egypt Challenge" that aims to promote tourism to Egypt and to prove that Egypt is still safe for tourism. May we all remember that Rotary Cionnencts the World.

We appreciate very much the support many of you have shown in the past few years. We have had the pleasure to welcome many Rotarians to our Cross Egypt Challenge who also have helped us raise awareness and support our beautiful country Egypt that has been suffering from bad mendia int he past few years. It is our duty as Rotarians in this part of the world to show our fellows what real Egypt is, and that it is very safe to visit and enjoy this once a great civilization.

Cross Egypt Challenge is an international cross-country motorcycle and scooter adventure tour conducted throughout the majestic and fascinating Egypt. Participation is open for Rotarians and non-rotarians a like and their accompanying spouses or friends from around the globe. People who do not ride motorcycles can also join this amazing adventure and be hosted in air-conditioned chase vans.

This amazing Rotary project started in 2011 and for the past 8 years, Rotarians and riders from over 45 countries took part  in the adventurous challenge. This year the challenge will start on October 17 and will last for 10 days and will pass by Egypt's top attractions and off the beaten track destinations. 

The 2019 season of Cross Egypt Challenge will include one of the best routes in the history of the challenge and will pass through many of Egypt's finest spots including modern cities, coastal resorts, historical sites, Egyptian western and eastern deserts and Egypt's Nile Valley.

I invite you, your club 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).
