Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi (C, in white) rides a bicycle with a few hundred Egyptians outside the military college in Cairo, 13 June, in this handout picture provided by the Egyptian Presidency. Sisi on Friday called on citizens to cycle and walk more in order to save money for the country which suffers from an energy crunch and spends billions on fuel subsidies. Egypt spent around 170 billion Egyptian pounds ($23.8 billion) on energy subsidies in the current fiscal year ending on 30 June, State media quoted the Government as saying earlier this month, and plans to cut that to 104 billion next year – Reuters
