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 one hour tour typically covers 10 kilometers (6-7 miles).
