a mellow yellow pedicab


























I found this while continuing my walk down 32nd street (see yesterday's post) towards penn station. I love how it's painted the same taxi cab yellow as a typical nyc cab is.
for more of all things yellow, please visit mellow yellow monday.

and how it draws attention to itself by parking on the sidewalk!

Sometimes I wonder how the drivers can pedal those things all day...especially when they carry more than one person at a time!

KaHolly said...

Gayle's right! The pedaler must be in really good shape. I love this concept and think there should be more like it, going green! ~karen

Cool pic!
But I have some of questions.

They are allowed to park their "cabs" at both roadway and sidewalk?

They could get extra fare in the case their customer was "Sumo" wrestler?

Hey, that's cute. I saw these in NYC but never rode in one.

Mimi said...

Yes, we have them here in Dublin too! I think they're a great idea. Here, they're free, sponsored by companies who get their logo on them, but you can tip the rider if you want.
Are they free in long Island?
Happy MYM!

Interesting, nothing like that here. The "driver" must be in excellent shape, talk about burning calories. Great picture.

Lois said...

I've always wanted to take a ride in one of those!

Dani said...

very cool indeed.

Hi everyone, Happy Monday!

Gayle, I've only seen a few men ride these & they always look extremely fit & are always carrying two if not three passengers.

Nori, I'm not sure what the rules are. this is the first time I've seen one parked & the driver was nowhere to be found. Perhaps he was inside taking a break!
As far as the size of their passengers, I hope the driver charges accordingly.
: )
Personally I wish more people would use bicycles in NYC. It would be much safer, healthier & cleaner.

This is a cool shot, Lily! I'm still sorry that the plan to cut down on traffic by charging cars to come into Manhattan didn't work. I'm with you: more bikes!

Q Smith said...

Interesting. I wonder if it is easier than it looks?
