A Cross Country Race In A Glorified Lawnmower

If you like comfortable suspensions, air conditioning, and a vehicle that's more powerful than a remote controlled toy you'd buy for a child, then look away now. The Rickshaw Rally is a unique challenge, that changes raw physical output for a slice of humility and a journey like no other.

This "race" is not limited to a specific route, or number of days. You'll buy a cheap Rickshaw, be taught how to fix it if it breaks down, and then set off in a cross country expedition of epic proportions. If you breakdown you're the mechanic. If you're hungry, you're self appointed chef who needs to locate food, and if you're tired, it's time to speak to the locals and find a humble abode for the night. There's nothing quite like this.

Our Pick

Rickshaw Run Indian Route

There's nothing quite like the original is there? Squash yourself and 2 mates into a rickshaw the size of a biscuit tin, then trundle your way through India's epic landscapes in search of a spicy adventure.

Oh and once you set off, you're on your own. Don't worry, the Indian people are famously warm and will give you sellotape and rubber bands to fix your lawnmower if it breaks down.

Imagine yourself and a couple of mates squashed into a 1 donkeypower rolling cake tin tackling thousands of miles of old school adventure. There’s no set route, no back-up. The only certainty is that you will get lost, you will get stuck and you will break down.

Un-routes are a simple yet devastatingly effective concept. There’s a start line and a finish line and everything in between is up to you. The distance you drive depends on how lost you get.

The Rickshaw Run is actually a charity race. We say race, it's hard to race on a machine that seems as fit for making toast as it does driving across a country but still it is technically a race. So far they've raised £8 million for charity!
