  • UWCers Youngest-Ever to Cycle Silk Road

    Published 03/09/18

    On 23 May 2018, a group of new UWC alumni embarked on what would be a record-breaking, life-changing journey. The group, which included Jerry and Magdalena from UWC Mostar, and Raghdan and Kesava from UWC Mahindra College, became the youngest-ever group to cycle the Silk Road, when 80 days and 4033 kilometres from when they set off in Istanbul, the team reached China. 

    The team travelled through nine countries, spreading the UWC mission and values wherever they went, by engaging with the people they met in conversations about shared humanity and environmental sustainability.

    Before the cycling journey began,  the team had high hopes for their trip: “I believe our journey represents what UWC stands for,” said Magdalena (Germany, UWC Mostar 2016-2018). “We want to bring people from all over the world closer to each other by sharing and spreading the thoughts of humans.”

    Check out some highlights of the trip in the team’s reflections below - and get inspired to live the UWC mission and values!
