The Story So Far

The Rickshaw Run has been wobbling along for a little more than a week. There have been some near misses and quite a few not-so-near-misses.

Drove down a highway last night in the dark, no high beams no speedo......don’t tell mum.
— Team Eager Beavers
Calling it for the night. Almost ended up being the meat in a truck sandwich a couple of times.
— Hindustani Beaver Company
Day 2 Guruvayor - Thalassery we only got lost once today and we may or may not have hit a motorcycle... No harm no foul. Score 4/5
— Intrepid Brothers
Almost tipped on a super steep hairpin bend, but managed to get back on all three wheels at the last minute.
— The Paneteers
Naan-o-nauts have hit a sign, a kid, a ceiling fan, a cow and a gate at a checkpoint into Goa. We’re coming in Hot!
— Naan-o-nauts

We're sure by 'kid' they mean goat. Fairly sure anyway.

Meanwhile Team Rick-shawshank Redemption have worked out how to do a wheelie:

You need three people in the back, while doing a hill start. Brake on, first gear, full revs, then let them all go at the same time and it’ll rear up
— Rickshaw-shank Redemption

We don't advocate this sort of misbehaviour. Especially if it gets us into trouble.

Friendly local kids trying to understand 'golf' with 'Men-go Chutney'. It's certainly not cricket
