Global Bike Explorer Sdn Bhd, a renowned adventure company, is proud to announce the upcoming
Ekspedisi Perpaduan Watikah Kemerdekaan 66 London-Kuala Lumpur 2023. This remarkable
motorcycle expedition will coincide with the 66th Independence Day celebrations in August and aims
to pay homage to the historic journey of Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj, who brought the Malayan
Declaration of Independence from London to Kuala Lumpur in 1957.

Led by the esteemed CEO of Global Bike Explorer Sdn Bhd, Mr. Arep Kulal, the expedition will embark
on a challenging 66-day journey, traversing 66 cities in 16 countries, covering a total distance of
nearly 22,000 kilometers. The objective is to retrace the footsteps of Tunku Abdul Rahman and
experience the hardships he encountered during that momentous voyage.

The Ekspedisi Perpaduan Watikah Kemerdekaan 66 London-Kuala Lumpur 2023 will commence on
June 20 in London, marking the beginning of an incredible adventure. As the participants venture
through diverse landscapes and encounter various cultures, they will forge strong bonds of unity and
solidarity among themselves and with the people they meet along the way.

Originally scheduled to start last year in conjunction with the 65th Independence Day, the expedition
faced unforeseen challenges when Myanmar’s borders were closed. Consequently, the event was

postponed to this year, providing an even more meaningful opportunity to join the 66th Independence
Day parade in Kuala Lumpur.

The significance of this first-of-its-kind expedition from London to Kuala Lumpur cannot be
overstated. Investment, Trade, and Industry Minister, Datuk Seri Tengku Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz,
announced his support for the event, highlighting its role in fostering patriotism within Malaysian
society. “This programme aims to showcase the arduous struggles undertaken by our past leaders
through a long and challenging journey, serving as a source of inspiration for our youth,” stated
Minister Tengku Zafrul.

The Superbikers Association Malaysia, the largest motorcycle association in the country, proudly
supports the expedition. Dato Lim Khong Soon, founder of Quantum Metal Review, a leading sponsor,
has also contributed significantly to make this remarkable undertaking possible.

To commemorate the nation’s Independence Day, 5,000 souvenirs in the form of flag-shaped
keychains and iconic buildings representing Malaysia will be distributed to the public at each stop
along the way. This initiative seeks to promote a sense of national pride and engage the public in the
spirit of the occasion.

The members of the Ekspedisi Perpaduan Watikah Kemerdekaan 66 London-Kuala Lumpur 2023 are
thrilled to embark on this extraordinary journey. They eagerly anticipate the remarkable memories
they will bring back to their home country upon their return.
