Executive Staff

  • Gregg Zuman


    Gregg Zuman


    At thirteen, Gregg landed his first cycling gig: delivering The Boston Globe in his hometown of Wellesley, MA. That was 1986. In the 1990s, he worked as a bike messenger in Manhattan. After forays into financial editing at various firms and party politics with the New York State Green Party, Gregg climbed back in the saddle in 2003 operating a pedicab. Two years later, he established Revolution Rickshaws initially as a rental operation sporting a fifteen-pedicab fleet. That same year, he co-founded the New York City Pedicab Owners’ Association with a couple of industry mates and also became U.S. agent for U.K. trike manufacturer Cycles Maximus. Since then, RR’s fleet doubled in size, its operations expanded to include experiential promotions and last-mile delivery solutions, and its primary revenue stream completely dried up. Today, Gregg drives innovation in LiveDrive™ Logistics & Engagement Marketing in collaboration with other cutting-edge enterprises and passengers in Midtown in collaboration with thousands of happy customers. He holds a B.A. in Politics from Occidental College.

Powered by Life™

Powered by Life™. What does it mean? Power derived in part or in whole from the living: man, sun, wind, wood, e.g. Bicycles, tricycles, roller blades, sailboats, and horse carriages are examples of modes Powered by Life™. Remarkably, many of these modes outperform “traditional” modes such as motor vehicles – even today. Our worktrikes, for instance, typically move at the speed of NYC (4-9 mph according to NYCDOT). Fundamentally, systems powered by life are ones able to operate completely via this power, requiring zero fossil fuel inputs or infrastructure to function in a worst-case scenario.

Living infrastructure? Yes, it exists, too! It’s infrastructure constructed via living processes. Such infrastructure includes petrol-free brick, stone, clay, Belgian block, water, or steel. This infrastructure, crafted and maintained for live-drive modes, lay beneath the mammoth layers of petroleum slathered on NYC streets.

Delivering market-leading results in today’s petroleum-drenched logistics playing field, Revolution produces satisfied customers while simultaneously delivering a return on investment to NYC via cleaner air, fitter workers, and superlight touches on city infrastructure. Modes, systems, and infrastructure Powered by Life™ empower companies as well as consumers to forge deeper relationships with the goods and services in which they invest. In partnership with our vendors and customers, Revolution is creating in the city a growing space in which we New Yorkers can generate the superior results we’re so driven to produce—while respecting our citizenry, land, and ecology in the process.

World-class Worktrikes

To do effective work, one needs the right tools for the task at hand—or foot, as is oftentimes the case here. Since 2004, Revolution Rickshaws has invested heavily in its fleet of world-class worktrikes, made exclusively by Cycles Maximus.

These well-crafted trikes—or rickshaws as some refer to them—are the strongest, best engineered, best designed form of manpowered and pedal-assist transportation available. They’re comfy, sleek, and sexy. Our NYC passengers, operators, and film crew customers rave about the sound, secure ride. Our trikes also are incredibly strong: Each trike is rated to move 550 pounds – though they’ve been known to approach a half ton without skipping a gear.

Working with Cycles Maximus equipment and RR’s skilled maintenance crew make it possible for RR to provide clients with top-notch service and an optimal experience every time our trikes hit the streets with an end in mind. The best thing about our trikes: They can go just about anywhere. In addition to having full access to the city’s growing network of bike lanes – an innovation that makes us the sensible upgrade from toxic trucks and vans that invariably spend too much time stuck in traffic and collecting parking tickets – our trikes traverse parks, waterfronts, bridges, and other iconic, picturesque destinations where motorized vehicles are not allowed.
