Mumbai Xpress Day 12: Pune to Alibaug
I took my afternoon nap in the hotel yesterday (as opposed to the auto rickshaw!) and work up 14 hours later, just in time for the 6 a.m. alarm this morning. I obviously needed the rest!

Mumbai Xpress Day 13: Alibaug to Mumbai
The last leg of the 2009 Mumbai Xpress Rickshaw Challenge, from Alibaug to Mumbai, began with trepidation today. Our team briefing this morning included warnings about potential overzealous traffic police, political disturbances, religious tension, Krishna Janmashtami festival celebrations, and swine flu hysteria. Even I felt daunted about going to Mumbai, and I live there!

Mumbai to Chennai Auto Rickshaw Challenge: My Daily Experience
This afternoon, the members of the 13 teams that are competing in the Mumbai Xpress Rickshaw Challenge attempted to drive an auto rickshaw for the first time. Plenty of laughter ensured.

Mumbai Xpress Day 10: Ratnagiri to Mahabaleshwar
The auto rickshaw was running like a dream, and easily doing 60 kilometers per hour on the open roads. Even better, my team mate had figured out how to get it going again if the motor became flooded with oil after refueling. We were doing well. Then, I changed down a gear while climbing a hill on the way to Mahabaleshwar.

Mumbai Xpress Day 11: Mahabaleshwar to Pune
The auto rickshaw's mechanical problems were fixed by the crew this morning, and we were on our way to Pune by 9 a.m., in the 2009 Mumbai Xpress Rickshaw Challenge.

Mumbai Xpress Day 2: Chennai to Vellore
What a day! I've been up since 6 a.m. and am exhausted. Most of the other participants feel the same way. The 2009 Mumbai Xpress Rickshaw Challenge officially got underway at midday when we departed Chennai for Vellore, around 130 kilometers away.

Mumbai Xpress Day 3: Vellore to Bangalore
I made it to Bangalore in the second leg of the 2009 Mumbai Xpress Rickshaw Challenge -- but oh, what a difficult day it was! Not only for me and my team mate, but also the other participants and the organizers.

Mumbai Xpress Day 4: Bangalore to Mysore
What happens when 13 auto rickshaws converge at a toll booth on a new highway where auto rickshaws are prohibited? I found out today, in what was the most hilarious incident of the 2009 Mumbai Xpress Rickshaw Challenge so far.

Mumbai Xpress Day 5: Mysore to Mangalore
After four days spent driving a rickshaw and dodging traffic through numerous Indian towns, I've started to get an idea of what could be inside the mind of the average Indian motorist.

Mumbai Xpress Day 6: Mangalore to Murudeshwar
We had the dishonor of being the last team to leave Mangalore this morning, thanks to our rickshaw predictably stalling beyond revival not long after we filled it with fuel. It was the usual problem of the motor flooding with oil. It keeps happening, no matter how well we try to mix the petrol and oil together.

Mumbai Xpress Day 7: Murudeshwar to Panaji
I'm so happy, today in the 2009 Mumbai Xpress Rickshaw Challenge we got a reprieve from having to wake up at the very unappealing hour of 6 a.m. We were allowed to depart Murudeshwar at our leisure, resulting in my laid back team mate and I being the last ones remaining at the hotel at 10.30 a.m. I really needed the extra rest.

Mumbai Xpress Day 8: Rest Day in Goa
Since I've previously visited Goa on a number of occasions, I made full use of the rest time while many of the Mumbai Xpress participants headed out to see some of Goa's top attractions and enjoy Goa during the monsoon season. Others devoted the time to fine-tuning their rickshaws.

Mumbai Xpress Day 9: Panaji to Ratnagiri
Having lost momentum by resting yesterday, I started the morning severely lacking in motivation for the long drive ahead, from Panaji to Ratnagiri, in the 2009 Mumbai Xpress Rickshaw Challenge.
