Responsible travel company Large Minority has very limited press trip places available for key travel media (plus one) to take part in their second ever India Rickshaw Challenge.

The group adventure specialists successfully brought their globally popular rickshaw rally format to India in 2018 and the country’s spectacular Kerala region will once again play host to this madcap, bucket list event in September 2019.

Large Minority is pleased to be in a position to invite US National titles (print or broadcast) or large online portals along for the ride, in which teams of two or three adventurers from all over the globe self-drive the country’s signature transport - the rickshaw - for ten days while completing daily challenges to accrue points in the hope of being awarded the coveted title of India Rickshaw Rally Champions!
