Supported by Forex Optimum Group, on May 20, Rahim Resad, a Malaysian biker, received warm welcome in Chelyabinsk. He is supposed to cross Eurasia while on his road from Singapore to Nordkapp, Norway's North Cape.
According to the Chelyabinsk portal u24.ru, Rahim was welcomed by local bikers in Chelyabinsk, the administrative centre of the region. “Travellers like Rahim would always find our support. This is fundamental to the biker fraternity”, said one of the bikers.
Rahim Resad thanked everyone who had helped to organize his welcome in Chelyabinsk and shared his first impression about Russia – his first-time visit – where he has always wanted to come to. “I like people here most of all. They're very friendly. Russia and Kazakhstan are the most friendly countries I've ever been to. I could feel it even at the Russian customs”, he said. Cultural immersion is of great value to Rahim as well as meeting aborigines in the territories of his travel.
Rahim also reminded that The Road To Nordkapp 2017 was a special motorcycle ride to raise funds for Free Food For All (charity project). “If I see that a person needs help, financial or otherwise, I certainly help”, Rahim said. “I believe that no person around the world should face hunger”.
In March 2017, Rahim Resad started his Trans-Eurasian journey called The Road To Nordkapp 2017 in Singapore, riding to Nordkapp. The route goes through the territories of 14 countries. Over a few weeks, Rahim has left thousands of kilometers behind riding in Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, India, Nepal, Pakistan, China, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan. His first stop is in Chelyabinsk, Russia. Next stops will be Yekaterinburg, Ufa, Naberezhnye Chelny, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Moscow and St. Petersburg. After crossing the Russian borders, Rahim Resad will be riding through Finland and Sweden to Norway, where he is going to finish his motorcycle journey in Nordkapp.

His first big journey was in 2008, when he travelled from Singarope to China through Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Yunnan Province in China.
In 2014, since the FFFA (Free Food For All) project was launched, Rahim has been its volunteer. By going on this motorcycle ride heading to Nordkapp, Rahim Resad hopes to attract more attention to the Free Food For All project and contribute to raising funds in order to help more people in need.
