On the way back from Surry Hills last week, Miss Sonja and I met a nice chap called Russell down at Circular Quay. He operates 4 lovely Cycles Maximus pedicabs, part of the global pedicab boom that is spreading across the world. Massive in the UK, Europe and the States, it's a damn good way to get cars off the streets in the CBD if you ask me. Just $20 for a standard trip through the city, the cabs take 2 people and cost almost the same as a taxi fare nowadays in heavy traffic, and are abviously far more fun as these photos would suggest.

Russell earns good money from the tourists and late night drunken girls on the town who like to pinch his bum! (but he's cute, can't say I blame them...)
If you can put up with a bit of bum pinching, perhaps you enjoy it, and want to earn money for riding around the city in Summer (!) leave a message here or email me and I'll put you in touch with him. Or pop down to Circular Quay and say hi in person.
Love the tagline on their website - zero polution transport solution - absolutely.
