Head by Aravind Bremanandam, Chennai Event Management Services (CEMS) is a reputed event planning & production company specializing in international logistics & event planning. With the first Rickshaw Challenge strategically planned back in 2006, CEMS today organizes 4 Major Rickshaw runs across the length & breadth of the country, namely - The Mumbai Express, Classic Run, Deccan Odyssey & the Malabar Rampage. They've also set up shop in Budapest, Hungary where they've crafted a number of off- beat motor sport challenges - The Caucasian Challenge, The Budapest Chernobyl Run, Trans Sahara Rally and the recently introduced Central Asia Rally. So what really is the Indian Rickshaw Challenge ? It is an international tuk- tuk rally where you get the chance to traverse large portions of the sub continent over the course of 7-14 days, sometimes longer depending on how much of the Country you'd like to soak in. With no fixed route, an auto rickshaw that might break down at any point & local folk who speak a different language every mile - makes for an absolutely thrilling but dangerous experience. Ideally, a team comprises of 2 members though 3 can easily hop on (might minimize your baggage space). Never ridden an Auto before ? Don't Bother, there's a crash course for all participants just before the event kicks off. Once you get comfortable on this dodgy vehicle you can also go the extra mile and pimp up your three wheeler - from custom paint jobs to over the top designs. It's perfectly legal and pretty much anything goes. There's not too much they haven't seen before so Surprise em!!
