Cyclos in Hanoi (Vietnam). Cyclos are human-powered tricycles taxis, now mostly a tourist attraction proposed by big hotels.
Photos of cycle rickshaws and Freight Tricycles (mostly from India and Vietnam).
I have also included photos of heavily loaded bicycles.
Cycle rickshaws are human-powered tricycles mostly used as taxi or to transport freight around cities in asia.
I have seen some loaded with maybe a ton of goods. Rickshaw drivers have legs of steel and they work very hard for little pay. They deserve much respect.
This is the most efficient freight transportation as far as carbon footprint and green gas emissions goes.
