Having witnessed the destruction of our forests, mountains, and rivers, Sherpa was determined to spread the message of peace, social harmony, and environmental protection across the globe. “One pedal stroke at a time, I hope my story will inspire people to act in their own way to make a greener Earth. I believe we can find solutions through mutual respect, dialogue and understanding rather than through violence”, Sherpa writes in his blog.
After punching in 101,321km on his bike so far, Sherpa has successfully delivered his message to the citizens of 100 countries across six continents.
