Trishaw Tours Rehearsal
We were very excited about our trishaw tours event in Singapore. The day began well with a rehearsal/training session at Jalan Kubor, a location chosen for its serenity in the heart of town and its proximity to Raffles City.
In essence, trishaws are more stable than bicycles on their own. They handle differently and require greater clearance on the left because of the side car, so it was important that we practised riding the trishaws with and without passengers.
Passenger size matters, however.
I picked one of the red trishaws, and after a slightly apprehensive start – note Derek’s concern! – was soon on my way.
It was soon time to move the trishaws to Raffles City – and for us to get our first taste of pedalling in traffic.
