Pune-based Saideep Dhondge is currently cycling on the western coast of India and is about to reach Vijaydurg, one of the oldest forts of Maharashtra. Today marks the fifth day of his Konkan cycling expedition which is being covered on the world’s most eco-friendly and energy-efficient form of transport - a bicycle.
