The Rickshaw Run has been liberally spread across Southern India like clotted cream and jam on a giant triangular scone.

Most of the brave adventurists are rapidly coming to terms with the crapness of their rickshaws, the hazards of the Indian roads and the limitations of their map-reading.

The first teams have already squeezed in their first breakdown, wrong turning, minor accident and quick-dash-to-the-roadside-to-hastily-evacuate-the-bowels moment. Here are the highlights of the first 52 hours.

First admission of navigational ineptitude:

Stopped for lunch. I think we’ve taken a wrong turn at every opportunity so far :P
— Team Toga

First accident:

After 4 U-turns within three minutes and Jordan crashing into a bollard we found a hotel in Salem and are going to awaken in 4 hours to catch the sunrise.
— Formula Naan

First mechanical woes:

First hour casualties- speedometer gone, muffler broken clean off, broken down with a busted spark plug wire.
— Dengue Dudes

First team to suffer an emotional breakdown?

We three mythical creatures of Swarga Loka are doing awesomely amazing, throttles jiggled, intakes spruced, good to go! Kisses and Rainbows.
