Going my way.


This summer we are seeing more of these bike taxis all over downtown. Could be a second job, hmmm. Wishing you all a great start to your week. Happy Monday.

Depending on exactly how hot it was, that would be a cool way to keep fit and earn some spare dollars all at the same time Randy!

I don't think it is as hard as it looks... dixit our youngest who made some money two years ago with a rented pedi-cab!

They are all over my town!
Nice picture!

Olivier said...

il n'y a pas encore beaucoup de Pedicabs en France, mais quand je suis a NYC, j'aime bien, c'est une autre facon de se promener dans la ville

Allison said...

Very nice! I could philosophize about that if you like... ;-)

Nancy Claeys said...

Would be great exercise! :)

Lowell said...

I like! But I think you'd have to be young and strong to do the job. I guess you are young and strong, though! Go for it. Just think of all the interesting photos you could take driving people around town!

EG CameraGirl said...

It's one way to get in shape! (Sounds like hard work to me, though.)

JM said...

It seems there are very different taxis everywhere nowadays and I like it. I never tire of looking at Santa Fe adobe architecture.

VP said...

I am barely able to pedal for my own weight!

Cezar and Léia said...

I like the motion feeling in this image, you did a great work with your camera! :)

Now that looks like a lot of work!

Kate said...

That looks like it would be a pretty exhausting job. I've seen them on the streets of Santa Fe, but never with any passengers.

TexWisGirl said...

great leg muscles, for sure! :)

Judy said...

This is a great idea. You can see so much more from a bicycle than from a vehicle. But I would feel bad having someone doing all the work to get me around town.

Luis Gomez said...

Wow! That is a lot of biking .

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Peddling an ice cream wagon might be more profitable.

Sharon said...

It might be a good way to stay fit....for the driver that is.

Halcyon said...

It's hard work, that's for sure!

Sandy said...

Very nice shot. It would a great job I would think...all that exercise and fresh air. =) Have a nice week Randy! =)

Tiago Braga said...

love the felling in the photo, my way!

RedPat said...

Too hot a job for me! Love this pic.

Magpie said...

Are people using them? Does seem like a good idea.

Teresa said...

I took a ride on one of those in Key West a few years back. The man peddling us had the biggest thighs--lots of muscle!

Lúcia said...

Cool, I'd love to go for a drive, as a passanger of course!
Have you tried it? ;-)

cieldequimper said...

Would keep me fit but I'd rather do it in Iceland. The temps there would suit me better! :-)

Tanya said...

this is a good job to keep in shape! now i'v got that lenny kravits song in my head!

ps: i've seen these little bike taxies in other places and would really feel self conscious that the driver would think i weighed too much lol

Regina K said...

I agree with Tanya, what if too many people crammed onboard....

lifeisaroadtrip said...

And why not? it would be a great way to get exercise, too!

I just wanted you to know that I. Am. Working. Again.

I may not have time to comment but always enjoy stopping by your blog!

A great way to ease some of the car traffic around the Plaza and the roads leading into the area!

5 or 6 years ago, we took a ride in Manhattan with a bike-powered cart like this. The driver had arrived from Siberia the day before and didn't know his way around the city. We had to tell him where to make the turns. It sure was a lot of hard work for him.
