In the Tandem Rickshaw there is an extra set of pedals for the passenger(s) so that you no longer have to feel guilty, as some poor person sweats like a slave powering you along the city streets.

Of course your gearing is variable so that it can range from being virtually effortless, all the way to that of a fully shared load.

Comes in the form of either a side-by-side seat rickshaw, or an in-line tandem for speedy trips. This variation is called The Tandem Taxi.

       If you are pedalling a chainring connected to the same chain which is being driven by the rickshaw driver, you could actually resist the driver's pedalling if you wanted to *really* make him sweat.

       That would be The Feet Dragging option.   

       I have also considered S&Ms Horse's Head Tandems, as a special option service, where the main "driver" wears a horse's head, and the "passenger" gets to mush them along with a whip.

       What if the pedals hooked up to a pair of rear-pummeling feet?

       aren't rickshaws technically hand-drawn ?

       There are different types, and there could be technical names, but the generic one is rickshaw.

       Strangely enough, there is a niece somewhere in the family tree called Tandem. In her youth she was known as the college bicycle; hence the term "can you ride Tandem?".
