The Alameda Pedicab Experience
There is probably no better place in the Bay Area than the bicycle-friendly island community of Alameda to enjoy the environmentally friendly ride in a bike taxi.
In many U.S. and European tourist destinations and university campus towns , "pedicabs" have become a fun and convenient method for locals and visitors alike to get around. What started historically as "Rickshaw" in Asia, can now be flagged down in London's inner city as a "Chariot", or in Berlin as a "Fahradtaxi". And some people even call it "Petty Cab"!
Now Alameda Pedicab, locally owned and operated, brings the "pedicab experience" to Silicon Valley, the San Francisco peninsula, the South Bay and East Bay, and in particular to the quaint alleys, bustling downtown area, Victorian neighborhoods and South Shore of Alameda, as well as to the aircraft carrier "Hornet", Mariner Square Drive and Ferry Terminal areas (per request). Alameda Pedicab "Green Valet Services" operate by reservation only, at weddings and private parties, corporate and public events, tours and fundraisers in Silicon Valley / the San Francisco Bay Area (except for the City of San Francisco).
Riding a Alameda Pedicab is clean, green FUN! By booking our yellow, pedal-powered "quad stretch limo" for yourself or your guests, you help protect your community from pollution, and might even learn something interesting along the route. Your friendly and knowledgabe Alameda "Pedicabby" is a local resident who will gladly answer your questions, point out points of interest, or provide you with shopping or restaurant tips, if needed.
Organizing a fundraiser or corporate event, with need for "green" valet services? Or are you looking for a fun, beautifully decorated wedding ride for bride and groom or even the whole wedding party? Are you considering a "retail therapy ride" with a friend? Would you treat out-of-town visitors to a tour of the architectural treasures of Alameda? Do you need a surprise date or Valentine's ride from a restaurant to the Alameda Theatre & Cineplex, later on to a ba, and then back home? Alameda Pedicab is at your service!
We LOVE Backseat Drivers
At Alameda Pedicab, we live and love to ride, and ride in such a way that our customers enjoy a comfortable and safe experience. Your rider loves the challenge of pedaling hard. Alameda Pedicab's founder rode his bicycle through the mountains of Germany and Switzerland, and later down the Pacific Coast from Seattle, WA to Santa Cruz, CA. Your Alameda "Pedicabby" is there to help if passengers need assistance with getting in and out of the Pedicab, or if they have any questions or suggestions along the ride. We provide seatbelts for you to safely buckle up in the backseat. Alameda Pedicab is fully insured.
A Senior-friendly Ride
Other than some pedicabs that you may have seen in San Francisco or abroad, the Alameda Pedicab model "Broadway" provides a footstep and a handlebar to help senior and physically challenged passengers to safely enter and leave the pedicab. Also, your friendly Alameda Pedicabby will gladly lend you a hand!
