Samim Rizvi

Samim is an international cyclist and the first Indian to qualify and compete in Race Across America – a 5000 kilometer race that spans across 12 days.

He believes all Indians need to bike more, to help with the growing amounts of pollution in the country. Some of Samim’s other adventures include riding his bike 600 kilometers from Ooty to Bangalore and back in 27 hours.

Samim previously worked as an engineer in Mumbai and a perfumer, but quit his jobs to pursue his love for cycling.
