Hi all, and welcome to silly Sunday.Smile While on our short break to Inverness, we decided it might be a good idea to hire a Rickshaw Taxi to take us somewhere that we hadn't seen as yet. Well firstly, we where taken on exactly the same route that we had walked the Day before, but the worst part was, that every few Yards, one of the Pedal'es would fall off. The Tool Box containing the Spanner etc to fix the problem (briefly)just happend to be under the lift up Seat that we where sat on. Well we've been on 'get off get on' trips before, but nothing quite like thisSmile The picture here shows Julie (jujupops) waiting for the guy to put the Pedal back on for the third time. But in all fairness, He did know all there was to know about the area and Folklaw, which made it a rather enjoyable and interesting trip.
Thanks to all for your kind comments and votes on my 'Looking Forward' picture, the Cosmos, and hope you enjoy this little story and image.

All the best to all,

John Smile

Happy Tours? Must be just the biz, John Smile
There is no M.o.T. test for bicycle taxis, I suppose.
The poor taxi driver must have really been up against it as he didn't even start from a level playing field. Still, after this repair I s'pose it was downhill all the way WinkWinkWink
Great fun for a Sunday now that you've had the time to warm up again.
Regards
Bill

At least he had the tools to fix it. Us canny Scots won't part with money if we can fix it ourselves hahahaha. Well captured, but I think I would have given him a kick by this time. Moira

Poor guy, he is trying to make a kind of living doing this, and his means of income keeps breaking! Must be really challenging for him. I hope he has permanently fixed the problem. Glad you had a good time though, and learned about the area. Nothing beats a good tour guide, even when his pedals fall off.......................Tongue

How annoying! Julie doesn't look all that happy to me so I guess you probably came up with a few new names for his business, most of which are probably best left unsaid on here Smile
