OUR PEDICAB PERFORMANCE REVIEWS- LIVING LIKE ROCK STARS

In the conventional working world where federal government lemming employees work 9-5 jobs— you get performance reviews and annual evaluations. In the pedicab world, we all want to ask each other the same question. It’s our way of comparing ourselves, judging our productivity, a performance review of sorts.  Although this question is on the minds of many pedicabbers, many don’t ask, don’t tell—– “how much... Read More

STEALING FROM THE RICH AND GIVING TO THE POOR

I must say that whenever I get off the metro to go to my house, I secretly wish that a pedicab will be waiting for me right outside the metro. Pedicab rides are my favorite mode of transportation! Especially because I am a bag lady (meaning I always walk around with more than both of my arms full of bags)! If the spirits-of-wish-come-trues bless me with such an honarble presence, I’d be jumping for joy. The thing is, it almost never happens.... Read More

TOP FIVE BIKE PATHS IN DC/METROPOLITAN AREA

5. Rock Creek Trail— 20 miles I’d say—this one is especially my pic on the weekends because the DC area becomes closed off to cars, and its just you and the road baby! I like to start this one off in Maryland and end in DC. It is more of an uphill slant I’d say… and you pass the Zoo (check out the pandas) and the ZOO LIGHYS in the winter! 4. Custis Trail—4 miles—A nice trail from Shreve Road where the Long... Read More

ANOTHER CUTE TESTIMONIAL

Washington, DC 9/4/2011 The idea of a pedicab ride never really seemed appealing to me. I barely even knew what pedi-cabbing meant. I remember the first time I even saw a pedicabber in DC a few years ago and wondered when and why such a thing was brought here. I always imagined that aside from the ride being extremely boring, I would find myself distracted the whole time by the overwhelming sense of guilt that I’d feel for the pedi-cabber who... Read More
