In 2010, Haidar Taleb started a 200 mile journey across the United Arab Emirates in his power chair.
Inventor of the solar powered wheelchair, Taleb put his invention to the ultimate test, and challenged the way we see disability.
By taking-up this journey, I want to raise awareness about disability and tell people that we, despite our disability can achieve anything as an individual, if we are determined to try and have courage to do so. — Haidar Taleb
This is a really cool way to make travel accessible to everyone. I for one would love to see disabled and able-bodied road-trippers alike, flocking down the bike lane off to their next adventure.
I mean, if you’re going to vacation in a sunny paradise, might as well–right? Moral of the story, sunny states, countries and tropical islands need to adopt a pedestrian/solar powered lane on all their big roads to facilitate such roadtrips!
All in favor say “roadtrip!!”
