It is not cheap but it is all hard work! Imagine the trishaw puller have to walk and run with you and the trishaw. That amount of weight and energy, it is hard work!
We have seen many trishaw riders run with the trishaws and it is not easy! Places like Arashiyama Bamboo Forest are off-road so they need to run thru the crowd. We know they are trained for this but it is still hard work.
