Pedicabs on Parade

An interesting development lately is the growing popularity of pedicabs in Atlanta. Decatur has had a pedicab service for about a year now, provided by Mike of Easy Living Pedicabs. He was out at Atlanta Streets Alive, providing rides. He even transported one guy - and that guy's bicycle - to a bicycle shop 2 miles away for some needed repairs. He also gave a lift to a film crew and all their equipment.

Two other operators were out at ASA as well - Hooters and Green Machine. They were super enthusiastic, but appeared to leave early. Some participants said they were having trouble with their single speed cabs on the hills. Rumor has it they are applying for licenses to operate in downtown Atlanta.

  1. They did have difficulty making it up the hills. I saw them on more than once, with unloaded cabs, pushing them up Edgewood. Makes me wonder how they will haul the heft of fat downtown tourists.
