So you want to be a professional cyclist?

I am now a professional cyclist - or tri-cyclist. Thats right. I drive a rickshaw (or pedi-cab) in Washington D.C.. Work is something like a video game in which you drive through obstacle courses of lost tourists, dodge crazy taxi drivers, evade the angry State Park Police, appease the Secret Service, minimize hill climbs, pick the correct way of the plethora of one way streets, dispense trivia and pull 300kgs of human up a hill (always with a smile). I work for 'tips' and by that I mean I suggest how much I would like to be paid while hoping for more. So far, the work has been fun. My legs are getting stronger and I haven't been pushed up a hill since my first day. My tan is getting a bit ridiculous...

love to the lobos.
