On New Year's Day, 68-year-old retired Colonel M.A. Kaleem set off on a 21,000-mile motorcycle ride around India, during which he will attempt to set a world record for longest distance traveled in one country without using the same route twice. Over the course of 90 days, he'll hit the capital city of every state in India. "I am dedicating this journey to protecting the environment. I also want everybody in the country to pledge to protect the environment and drive safely while on the road," he said in a statement before leaving.
