Malabar Rampage Kicks off from Trivandrum!

This year’s Rickshaw Challenge Malabar Rampage is on the way, with 17 teams racing their rickshaws up the Malabar Coast from Trivandrum to Panaji, across Kerala, Coastal Karnataka and Goa.

Things have not been easy for our teams, since they had to combat strikes and long journeys, but some of our teams are troopers and have managed to tackle their challenges on the way. Challenges are made up of factual questions they can find out en route, pictures of the participants doing specific tasks like making chai, wearing costumes and for arriving to the hotel on time.

On day 4 of the challenge, our top three teams in terms of points are:

1st place РTeam BeunkenBräu (2125 points)

2nd place – The Six and Out Farewell Tour/The Polar Bears (Draw at 1750 points)

3rd place – Malabar Handlebars (1650 points)

Challenges so far have involved making chai at streetside stalls…

We also have another category where we award teams 100 points for photos of the day. We’ve been running this contest since we kicked off from Trivandrum in Day 3. We have 2 winners so far – Team Spice Boys and Team Three Amigos. Congrutulations!
