Touristic Transport in Barcelona: Trixis or Taxi Bikes

Touristic Transport in Barcelona: Trixis or Taxi Bikes
© All Rights Reserved

Modern cities are collapsed with heavy traffic and Barcelona is no exception. A wonderful alternative, at least for tourists, is the use of Trixis or Taxi-Bikes. Don´t worry someone will do the pedalling for you and you don't have to feel sorrow for the driver because the bike has an electrical engine to go uphill or counteract heavy loads like a sumo fighter, Ronaldo or Mike Tyson. This day I was standing on the corner of Passeig de Gracia and Consell de Cent, getting ready to take a picture of Casa Rocamora, for my Catalan Modernisme collection, when the pedicab suddenly passed me by so soon that I was just able to catch half of it. If you want to know about routes, fares or timetables check Trixis'official site.

Me encanta! Espero que los traigan a Madrid, pero el tráfico aquí es demasiado horrible.

I love it! Hope they bring them to Madrid, but traffic here is too ghastly.
