Auto Rickshaw Diaries from across India
‘The hawkers and the motorists were bewildered seeing foreigners behind the wheels of brightly painted autorickshaws in Coimbatore on Sunday morning. Well, the onlookers didn’t know they were part of Rickshaw Challenge — Classic Run 2014, which will see them attempt to cover over 1,000 km on autorickshaws.
As many as 12 teams from the U.K., Germany, Australia and Norway were flagged off from Residency Towers, and they will proceed to Puducherry before travelling to Thanjavur, Madurai and Tuticorin. The 10-day challenge will conclude in Thiruvananthapuram.
