Meet the Team

Aravind Bremanandam – Founder and CEO

Aravind is the brain behind and the lead organizer of the Rickshaw Challenge. He’s a real cosmopolitan sharing his time between Europe and India. He runs an internet marketing company in Budapest, meanwhile he started the first “boutique” hostel in India. He also raced in Africa several times and assisted with adventure rallies all over the globe. If it’s got a motor, a bad road and a party at the end you can almost guarantee he’ll have been there at least once.



Princely Jeyachandran

Princely heads the Indian operations. A jolly good guy who among many accomplishments holds a record as ‘winner of Idly (rice cake) eating competition’ in university days.

Dabbled in the printing, binding business before finding his true calling here in the Rickshaw Challenge.


Guy Zucker – Manager

His relaxed personality is a great compliment to all the activity a massive international event tends to generate. With a background in psychology studies, digital art and international travel he brings a rich sense of diversity and experience to these events.
