Tuk Tuk Boom
Rickshaw Run Sri Lanka January 2024
This rare assortment of Kiwis decided to get shoe-horned into a motorised peach tin before they’d even driven a car together ... But, there’s nothing like bouncing around the backroads of Sri Lanka for a bit of team bonding. Jack, 27, is a mechanical fitter. If he can’t fit the doodacky into the thingamajig and make it jiggetywhatsit again, no one can. He might have worn his cap backwards on his nog so long it’s fused with his genetic code, but he can deliver one-liners that’ll split the atom. If we fail to take the bend for thigh-slappin’, it’s going to be Jack’s fault. Mason, 23, is an engineer by trade with 1600 km of solid tuk tuk-ing already to his name. He had to pull that vehicle on like a tight pair of jocks to drive it but he must like a snug fit since he’s coming back for more. Mason can catch a rust fragment on the breeze and restore it to former glory. He never signs off a repair without a “that’ll hold” guarantee of excellence. The sheer force of his extroversion alone could propel us over the length and breadth of Sri Lanka. Hannah, 40, is a writer, publisher and podcaster which is obsolete in a practical sense, but there will be multisyllabic commentary when the sh*t hits the fan. A seasoned adventure traveller and racer she brings wisdom, experience and cunning to the table alongside a signature loaf of sourdough. It’s been 14 years since competing in The Mongol Derby 2009 and she can’t wait to discover what fresh horrors she can inflict upon her backside during The Rickshaw Run.
We only store and share the data we need to give you the adventure you bought from us or use the service you wanted to use for as long as you want to make use of it.
Well, in truth, we sell your data to criminals as soon as you land on the site. By the time you read this you’ll have already had your identity cloned. You probably weren’t making the most of it anyway if someone can borrow part of it.
You can delete yourself at anytime and then you won’t need to worry about your privacy.
If for some reason you’ve got so much free time you actually want to read something boring here is the legal shittwittery we probably nicked from a website selling coloured stationary so we don’t get fined by the EU. Which would probably never happen. Like Brexit. But if I were you I would take a fork and stab out your eyeballs instead. Like Brexit.
