A solo cyclist attempting to break the world record for cycling 50,000 miles around the world has praised the people of Dundee for their hospitality.
Avijit Chakraborty, 39, from Calcutta, aims to complete his epic journey in just 20 months.
He left India in July and has already visited 21 countries and clocked up more than 15,000 miles.
Guinness World Record rules mean he cannot accept offers of sponsorship so the ride is being financed almost exclusively by donations.
He also relies on making contacts with local communities for accommodation.
Mr Chakraborty arrived in Dundee on Thursday and will stay in the Sikh Temple in Nelson Street until Monday.
He said: “I don’t have any acquaintances in any of the places I have visited but I have always got a good reception and people have accommodated me and been very hospitable.
“The world is run by good people and good people are in large numbers everywhere, while bad people are microscopic in number.
“There are many good people in Dundee.”
Mr Chakraborty will leave the City of Discovery on Monday and cycle to Edinburgh and London before heading to America, Africa, Asia and Oceania to complete the tour.
Where possible, Mr Chakraborty visits schools to talk about environmental issues and his epic ride is aimed at raising awareness of climate change.
He said: “It is so important to protect the world from climate change.
“I have visited more than 100 schools to talk to the children about sustainable development and global warming. If only two or three children take notice of what I have said, then it has all been a success.”
Dundee City Council administration leader Ken Guild said: “Dundee has always had a reputation for being friendly and outgoing.
“I am delighted he will be leaving Dundee with a good impression of the city and it’s people and I wish him the best of luck.”
