Well, life as a ‘Rickshaw Gangmaster’ is always interesting. When I got into this business 12 years ago, hardly thought that one day my efforts of peddling a 3x seater trike would end in ‘number one enemy of London’. After all cars kill around 2000 people a year and rickshaws none, so is it just me thinking that this is a witch hunt?
So again, the mayors office has launched the campaign to ‘ban rickshaws in London’. I know, it sounds just like a press release from the black cab industry but with public money, it’s to hard to sort out a pedicab “license”, especially if your paying friends don’t want it.
So grind on we do one slow turn of the crank into another fun filled year for pedicabs, rickshaws and Bugbugs in London xxx
