Children playing with a cargo tricycle in a village (India)

In the back, can see plastic trash littering the area, sadly a common sight in India.­

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.­
