How many Modes of Transportation, a PVC Pedal Car
At the Park
I went to the park, last Saturday and spent an hour just sitting around watching people. And there was one thing I noticed, people love different kinds of transportation. We use it of course to get from one place to another. We also use it for recreation and for exercise. So I thought I'd try to see how many modes of transportation I could see in one hour at the park.
It was very interesting to watch and see what people were doing. What they were using and how they interacted with each other and people around them.
Trolley / Public Transportation
The first thing I saw was this trolley.
The trolley is public transportaion, in our town and very important for the town, because a lot of people use it.
Gotta love the Bike.
The next thing I saw was a couple bicycling along the path. It was a very nice day to be bicycling. I know a lot of people who use bicycling as a means of exercise. What a great way to get a little exercise, spend time with someone else, and see the sights around the park.
Another great mode of transportation, I saw was scooters. Not much exercise, but hey they are a lot of fun to ride around.
And this couple seemed to be having a ball riding around and taking a look at the river.
That day was a pretty good day to be riding them also, because it wasn't particularly crowded and you could just ride around at your own leisure, without worrying about people in your way.
Of course, you can't go by river without seeing boats. There were a few boats running around the water, and it was really nice because it wasn't particularly windy so the waters were not too choppy.
The boaters seemed to be having a great time out on the water.
When you Can't walk.....
Motor Powered Wheelchair
We often take for granted the fact that we use our feet for transportation. However there are those who need something different. And what a great way to get around if you can't walk. These motor powered wheelchairs, make it so much easier to be independent, when it is not possible to walk.
My Favorite, the PVC Pedal Car.
This was my favorite form of transportation that I saw that day. The PVC pedal care, it is made of bicycle parts and pvc pipe. This was a couple of older gentleman, who where out just taking a leisurely ride. I thought it would be a cool project to try to make one of those. I did a little research the plans cost about $18 dollars and it will hold around 350lbs. It just looks like lots of fun for kids and adults.
