Are the pedicabs safe?
Yes, very safe. All the cabs are professionally manufactured by Main Street Pedicabs in Colorado, U.S.A. Safety features include disc brakes, seat belts and reinforced frames. Victoria is a very bicycle oriented town. On many streets, there are specially designed bike lanes. Guests constantly remark about how courteous drivers are towards cyclists and pedestrians.
The tour operator is proud to announce that they have a perfect safety record since they began operations in 2001.
Is there a motor underneath the cab?
No. The operators have the horse-like strength but they smell better! Besides that, they know how to avoid the hills. A 75-minute tour typically covers 10 kilometers (6-7 miles).

Be sure to specify a time when you BOOK this trip! Our pedicab showed up at 8 a.m. and we had to re-negotiate to take a later trip. That being said, it is a really fun trip and the drivers pedalers?
know lots of interesting and fun facts about the city and especially Chinatown. It was one of the highlights of our trip!
