Assistant Professor Shameem from the Department of Computer Engineering Manipal International University Nilai has a passion for cycling and he has carried out numerous group and solo cycling expeditions. Early this year he came up with a mega solo cycling expedition plan to cover the whole of Peninsular Malaysia i.e. 2,200 km in 15 days. Working with the Rotary Kasih and Rotary Clubs in Malaysia he planned to raise funds for transforming the lives of needy deserving students.
