Many of us dream of going on an epic roadtrip at some point in our lives, driving either a motorcycle, or perhaps a hot sports car, or maybe even an RV, in order to get out and see more of the world. That's easy – it just takes money. And certainly you want more of a challenge than that, right?
Not too many people dream of seeing more of the world by driving over 2000 miles across India on a glorified lawnmower. It takes way more than money to do something like that. It takes some real chutzpah, some cojones, a serious sense of adventure, and more than a little bit of craziness to follow the "Un-Route" of the Rickshaw Run over ridiculous terrain in an unsuitable vehicle.
But if you were to choose this, you'd be one of a select few people in the entire world to say you've done it. And that alone is reason enough to go.
The Rickshaw Run is the latest offering from The Adventurists, and it combines an epic adventure, lots of parties, an eye-level tour of India, charity fundraising, and a very intimate relationship with the 145cc of awesomeness that is the powerplant of the auto-rickshaw. Oh yeah, and you get to pimp your rickshaw.
