Happy Rickshaw

There is now a pedicab business in Charlottesville. UVa grads and pro cyclists Ian Ayers and Christoph Herby have had Happy Rickshaw up and pedaling for over a month. They had a great open house on Wednesday at their Ix Building location, to show off their various cabs (room for up to 3 people) and introduce their very fit drivers. So far they run on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, mostly working the downtown - UVa corridor and local events. Mike Gaffney told me that he and friends took a rickshaw from Eric Clapton and thought it was fabulous. Currently you need to get lucky and flag one down, but soon they will have their phone dispatch up and running.
