Two doctor brothers from Nashik rode into the city early this morning on their bicycles, having completed 6,000 kilometres in 10 days and 20 hours in their attempt at a Guinness record. 

Notably, Dr Hitendra Mahajan and Dr Mahendra Mahajan were the first Indians to win the world’s toughest and most prestigious bicycle race of 4,860 km – The Race Across America (RAAM) – in a Team of Two category in June 2015. Dr Mahendra said, “We have fixed a GPRS system on our bicycles so we can prove our distance and location and have collected other proof as well to send to the officials at the Guinness World Records.”

The message the Mahajans having been spreading on their ride across the country is ‘Follow the rules and India will rule’, appealing to Indians to just follow the government’s rules. Dr Hitendra said, “We started our ride on December 18 at 7.20 am from Gateway of India and rode on the country’s Golden Quadrilateral spanning 6,000 km of highways connecting four major cities of Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkatta and Delhi.”

Dr Mahendra said, “We used to complete 550 km a day. Over the 10 days on the road, we met citizens who spoke positively on the PM’s demonitisation decision and other things.”
