The Rickshaw Run 

The Institute of Adventure Research, a group of eccentric lunatics, have decided that the best way to enjoy the Christmas holiday season is to spend it in a three-wheeled, 150cc, motorised rickshaw, navigating the mountains, mud tracks and tropical heat of India.

Not to be confused with the Cannonball Run, the Rickshaw Run has been organized by the mysterious League of Adventurists, who believe that the world is far too full of health and safety regulations and have set their sights on saving the world from the tyranny of boringness and safety. However, being a jolly good bunch of fellows, they decided that all their adventures should raise money for amazing charities.

This year's Rickshaw Run started on the 27th of December, 2006, at Cochin in the deep south of India and will finish some 2000 miles and 2 weeks later, at the famous tea town of Darjeeling, in the Himalaya foothills. The exact route is left to the discretion of the teams or possibly the number of gin & tonics they consume.
