The word "rickshaw" is from the Japanese word "jinrikisha," which means "human-powered vehicle." In the past, rickshaws were transportation for the wealthy, but that has changed. Nowadays, cycle-rickshaws, pedicabs and mini-cars called "auto-rickshaws" have replaced the human-pulled vehicles.

An innovative variety of modern rickshaws and other human-powered people transports can be seen in this collection.

Implications - Transportation that is both stylish and gives you a workout is something that appeals to people who are both eco-conscious and physically active. I think that getting exercise on the way to and from work is something that many people wish they could do. Exercise is definitely something that many people are lacking and the more ways it becomes available to them the better. Stats for 26 Rickshaws & People-Powered Transports Trending: Older & Average
