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

Too Pretty to Pedicab?

   Whether you like to say it out loud or not, there is a definite pedicab stigma. People are constantly coming up to us girl pedicabbers and saying “You are way too beautiful to be doing that!”…and it bothers me. Ok. So since I’m pretty what should I be doing?

DISCOVER DC’s “HISTORY”- a TRUE LOVE STORY—DISCOVERED ON MY BIRTHDAY

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)!

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
