Trekking freaks Partha Mukherjee of Baksara, Howrah and Supratim Mazumdar, Bongaon, North 24 Parganas, have descended on an adventure trip with the message of ‘Save Tree, Save Life’. The duo have set off on a 752km cycle trip from Sagar Island to Darjeeling. Partha and Supratim have started cycling from March 19 from Ganga-Sagar and intend to complete the trip in approximately 20 days. “This is like a trekking expedition itself, climbing up from sea level (0 metre) to a height of 6700m above sea level. We are carrying a message for saving the environment all along the way,” said Partha.
The trip flagged off from Bharat Sevasram Sangha Ashram at Sagar Island. On completing 6 days of cycling, the duo found immense support from local people and administration on the way. “We have reached Tarapith and plan to stop over for a night. We will start off for Dhulian in Malda,” said Partha on March 24.
