    Duncan, yes we are currently hiring, check out the Wanna Drive link on http://www.pdxpedicab.com. As for a trip to the airport since we are based out ofthe Pearl it may need to be a planned trip, our riders rarely turn down a challenge :)

    Magnus, Thanks for the response. That would truly be an experience. I wonder what the average speed is in one of those pedicabs. I think it\’d be about a 9 mile trip from my house to the airport. I plan on riding myself to the airport one of these days, but just haven\’t made it yet.

    Glad to hear that the riders may be up for the challenge!
