12/21/2007: "Bicycle Fixation Knickers and the Solar Gondola"
Reno Tondelli of Venice Beach runs a solar-assisted trishaw service in the Santa Monica area and recently entered a video explaining the genesis of his new trade into a "contest that is searching for people who have manufactured something that uses pedal power to help propel our world into a more humane and sustainable possibility."

Reno's a great guy; you can usually meet him at the Santa Monica Critical mass ride. And pedicabs are a great solution for carfree short-distance taxi service in commercial, recreational, and dense residential areas.
