Name:
Karim Azmi
Age:
44
Where are you from?:
Alexandria, Egypt but now living in Maadi, Cairo.
What do you do for a living?
I am a Lawyer
When and why did you start cycling?
I cycled a lot as a child but took on mountain biking rather seriously about two years ago. I started it for fitness then it developed into a hobby (and an addiction as well)
Road, off-road, or both?
Both, I now use cycling to go almost everywhere in Cairo (and sometimes outside Cairo too).
Tell us about your bike(s)!:
For road cycling I have a Bianchi Camaleonte 4 model. Very light, fast and comfortable. My mountain bike got stolen two week ago but I have ordered a new CUBE AMS which I should get shortly from Germany. Meanwhile, I am using a borrowed Peugeot mountain bike for the weekly rides and it is serving the purpose very well.
Favorite ride(s) (road or off-road):
My favourite off road ride by far is the area that we call “balcony and ridge” at Wadi Degla protectorate while my favourite road ride is the return trip from Sukhna to Cairo.
Do you practice other sports?:
Yes, swimming and running.
Tell us about your cycling-related injuries/accidents:
Lots of them!! I have learnt the basics of mountain biking the very hard way. I would almost get a crash every week end. Things are a lot better now.
Anything else you want to tell us about yourself? :
I am a Zamalek fan.
