Bounding About Havana via Bicitaxi

Classic American cars get all the glory, but they’re not the only way to get around Cuba’s capital in uncommon style. Bicitaxis like this one burst on the scene in Havana around 20 years ago. Like the classic cars, bicitaxis are big on individual style, often festooned with colorful plastic ribbons streaming from the handlebars and flags of various nations flying from anywhere they can be affixed. Ceilings are adorned with vibrant paintings or sayings, anything to stand out. It’s all pedal power with these urban movers, providing a more intimate way to get to know the real charms of Havana.
