Carol from team ‘The Boring Rickshaw’ sent through this absolute beaut. Hand’s up who wants to be there?

This herder was bitten by a croc. That’s gotta hurt.


The “Late Kicks” offered lotus flowers to their tuk’s Buddha. Hoping for some Karma to keep them safe in the traffic.

This monkey chowing down on their ‘offering’ was probably not part of the plan.

“We tukked up a mountain for two hours to find the road at the summit closed. Feckin beaut of a drive though”

They probably could’ve tried a bit harder though. A couple of hours later team ‘Whoooooop!’ managed to negotiate a way through.

Essex Express get stopped by the Police for a fifth time. The cost so far? A firm handshake.

Canuck Tuks seem to have a spot of bother. Perfect time to stop for a cup of tea then.

The moggies here are f*cking massive. Still give ’em some catnip and they’re anyones

 

You can plan all you like. But if your rickshaw and the road don’t like your plan, you’ll have to do what they want anyway.


The teams will see some impressive wildlife while out in Sri Lanka and have decided to capture footage of the most leathal of them all. FFS.

 

It’s that time of the day where the teams share their beer photos. Lots of beer. Beer, beer, beer.

Well now, aren’t they something.

Oh no. Some of the teams have already suffered the ‘wrath’ of the local police.

The Adventurists very own Mr Matt murdering a classic. Typical.

When it costs you a bottle of arak to get your tuk tuk over river. Don’t they look ever so delighted.

Team ‘Taxi to Talalla’ made the climb to the summit of Pidurangala to get an epic view of Lion Rock. Ooooo, isn’t it lovely.

The rules of the road are quite clear; reptiles and other potentially dangerous animals take priority, then underneath spilt milk and cow poo, it’s you.

Team Mario Siblings had a puncture and the extra tyre they were given had a puncture too. Fun times indeed.
A rickshaw puncture is an easy fix

James Cooper from team ‘Essex Express’ sent this our way. They’ve been making friends with some local policemen who look delighted that numbers have been exchanged.

Oh my.
Monkeys doing their thing

Why do all the monkeys in Sri Lanka look like Boris Johnson?

Team ‘Cuzzies Go Crazy’ tried to think of the most crazy thing they could and this is what they came up with. Must have taken them a full 16 seconds to conjure up.

Team Tuk Tuk At The Disco quickly discovered that getting stuck is all part of the fun. This will happen MANY MANY more times, don’t you worry.

 

The crew were celebrating after the teams had left. Not because they were happy things went off without a hitch, but because the music was just so ruddy good.

 

The Rickshaw Run Sri Lanka 2019 is ready to go. Just look at all those faces ready to be bitten, bruised and battered. 40 rickshaws are ready to set off into the abyss for one hell of an adventure.
