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.

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.

Exercise is definitely something that many people are lacking and the more ways it becomes available to them the better.
