Pedicabs in China

Not only are bicycles ubiquitous in China but also pedicabs. They compete the streets with other modes of transport — and can be annoying when they cause and contribute to the traffic during rush hours.

Pedicabs have many uses to many people. They are practical to use for every task that involves heavy loads and distances. They are also a cheaper alternative to taking taxis and hiring moving companies. I used it myself when I transported all my stuff from one flat to another in five return trips— a total of a thousand meters. Moving had never been fast and easy riding on and maneuvering a pedicab. Though my ex-neighbor really never wanted me to pay for using/ borrowing his pedicab, I insisted. I handed him 20 yuan but he returned half of it. My heart was glad and happy. I got a 50% discount! LOL…
