Tandem cycling: After conquering the skies, visually challenged man to conquer Himalayas
Pune-based Divyanshu Ganatra had earlier this year become the first visually-challenged person in India to paraglide and now he aims to become the first such person to go tandem cycling on the difficult terrain of the Himalayas.
“Sports is a great breaker of barriers. When both communities participate in these activities, empathy is naturally built,” he said. Another reason Ganatra decided to undertake the journey was to raise awareness about this sports in India so that the country manages to represent itself in the 2020 Para Olympics.
