Adil hoped to shatter the earlier record of cycling across the country in eight days, seven hours, and 38 minutes that was held by a 17-year-old named Om Hitendra Mahajan from Nashik, Maharashtra, say reports.

Adil, who embarked on this difficult journey on March 22, 2021, from the Clock Tower at Lal Chowk, Srinagar, cycled the same distance in 8 days, 1 hr, and 30 minutes and reached Kanyakumari this morning at 8:30 am, reported Kashmir Mirror.

While speaking to local media, Adil said, “Alhamdulillah! I am happy that I broke the previous Guinness record. I also thank my crew members and the people in Kashmir. Due to their support and good wishes, I became a Guinness world record holder,” he added.

However, people online were elated and showered their love and support for the young lad.

 

I can’t even imagine how he did this in such a short time, but he sure deserves all the praises he’s been receiving from across the country. Great work, dude!
