In a unique adventure, a young couple of Pathsala in Assam’s Barpeta district has embarked on a biking journey across 13 states to promote tourism potentials of the State.

The duo Rakesh Choudhury and Nitumani Talukdar will cover Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, West Bangel, and three union territories.

Their total journey will cover 8500 kms.

Locals have lauded their effort at a time when the Assam government is spending crores of rupees for promoting tourism but to no avail.

The main theme of this journey is ‘to spread beauty of Assam across India’.

The couple will co-ordinate with the local riding clubs of the states which will arrange for their lodging.

Before starting their journey, the couple was felicitated by various organizations at Pathsala in front of Hari Mandir on Thursday.

Ananda Khataniar, brand ambassador of Forest and environment department flagged off the ride in presence of Luit riders, Bajali cycling community, All Assam Students Union along with locals of the area.
