Those wishing to immerse themselves in Indian culture should look no further than off-beat travel company The Adventurists’ Rickshaw Run. The race, completed in small teams of 2-3 people, is a 3500 kilometre pan-Indian adventure on none other than a flimsy, tri-wheel Rickshaw. It’s not fast, will flip if a corner is taken too quickly, breaks down a lot and doesn’t make for a comfortable ride. But this it seems, is half the fun. The race spans 16 days and entrants are almost certain to get lost, stuck and break down. There are downpours, mud ruts and cows to contest with, but there’s also the heartwarming generosity of the people, new friendships and if one’s team wins, glory.
There are three slots for the 2016 Rickshaw Run, with January, April and August 2016 dates to sign up for. See The Adventurists for details.
