Summer 2002 in my hometown Biel-Bienne: It's a once-in-a-lifetime party between the city and the lake. The whole country is visiting Biel for the famous EXPO-02. How could I enjoy some of this, if I needed to work for school in Zurich, prepare that BIKEVENTURE project and also get physically fit for the journey, and also earn money? Become a Bicycle Taxi Driver in Biel was the answer and it turned out to probably be the greatest solution!
So I got part of a pioneer project in Switzerland and was proud of doing something good for the environment. The customers generally had lots of fun, and I always felt much sympathy from the crowds in the city. Overall it was really a highly addictive job!
Velotaxi was on duty in 2002 and 2003 during summertime.
Currently, I am working with a team of drivers to continue and even enhance this sympathetic service next year. Check out the website of our project BBVELOTAXI
