World Motorcycle Day Adventure Stories ~ India Rickshaw Run

World Motorcycle Day support Luke McEvoy and Anika Herrmann's India Rickshaw Run

Adventure seekers Luke and Anna Herrmann are taking a 150cc rickshaw (tuk-tuk) 5000km across India's toughest terrain - Adventurers? or Idiots?

Let me introduce you to our friends Luke Mcevoy and Anika Herrmann. They're taking part in a 5000km road trip across the whole width of India, from Shillong to Jailasmer. This may sound like a barrel of laughs, but when you see that he is planning to do it in a 150cc rickshaw, it soon becomes obvious that this is by no means going to be an easy or even pleasurable journey. In fact, I'm really rather glad it's them and not me. As Luke and Anika put it, "As we battle through some of the most difficult terrain India has to offer, as well as the inevitable breakdowns, breakages and bouts of illness." It really sounds lovely doesn't it!

Why are Luke & Anika doing the India Rickshaw Run?
Apart from the fact that our friends Luke and Anika are bonkers, they're actually trying to do something very very special indeed. The Rickshaw run is all about raising money for FRANK WATER. "FRANK Water was founded by Katie Alcott in 2005, after she visited India and contracted dysentery after drinking dirty water. Coming back to the UK she realised that by selling ethical bottled water she could use the profits to fund new clean water facilities for villages in need. 5 years on…FRANK Water is now two distinct entities. FRANK Water Projects, a small registered charity (No. 1121273) that can receive your direct donations, and FRANK Water Products, a not-for-profit social enterprise which continues to give 100% of its profits to the charity."

When are Luke & Anika doing the India Rickshaw Run?
