Mr Shaaban, who doubles as the President of UCI Paracy­cling Commission, also engaged in collaborations geared towards developing cycling in Ghana.

“It was a big platform to share ideas and discuss measures towards the growth of cycling in Ghana and the continent,” he stated.

In attendance was the Union Cycliste International (UCI) Pres­ident, Mr David Lappertient and CAC and UCI Vice President, Dr Waggih Azzam who welcomed all the representatives to this year’s gathering.

The meeting discussed tools and resources for national federations and the UCI Solidarity Programme.
