Organic Transport for New York: Moving People & Cargo by Pedal Power
Tuesday, May 11: 7:30-9:30pm
Trike is the new truck! Join Revolution Rickshaws for a lively slide presentation on the present and future of pedal-powered cargo and passenger transport in NYC. Learn how an average human can pedal 500+ pounds around town, without fuel. Get the inside scoop on driving a pedicab in Midtown. Find out how NYC might transition from fossil-fuel-dependence to vigorous self-reliance in the realm of short-hauling heavy stuff.
Speakers: Gregg Zukowski (Founder & Owner) and Helen Newman (General Manager) of Revolution Rickshaws. A former state committee member of the New York Green Party, Gregg has been pedicabbing in NYC since 2003 and running RR since 2005. He is president of the
NYC Pedicab Owners’ Association. Helen learned to drive a giant trike in 2008. She holds a certificate in permaculture design, and is in the process of starting a rooftop farm in the RR parking lot.
