There are some forms of transport in London you can try which are out of the ordinary and I am hoping to highlight a few of these over the next few weeks.
They are of course nothing to do with Transport for London!
So how about the Pedibus, which carries 12 passengers - eight of them sat sideways and each with pedals and a chain connected to the drive mechanism, and four in a 'VIP area'. It is a bit like at at a dinner table but without the table. Available for hire for groups on pre-organised trips or following a prescribed route you can make a bit of a statement as you travel around. (Advertising is also allowed!). It looks like great fun.
Of course being entirely human-powered there are no harmful emissions so is environmentally friendly.
More information is available at http://www.pedibus.co.uk. I should stress I know nothing about the organisation and haven't experienced the trip - anyone who has please share it here!
