    Default Downieville Great Rickshaw Race!

    Hello everyone, this is Jose Becerra from DRAGON EXPRES RICKSHAW.

    I just did an even in the city of downieville in Northern California.
    This is one of the last remaining original minning towns of the CALIFORNIA GOLD RUSH OF 1849.

    The city had a rickshaw race on Labor Day, September 2nd, 2007 at 3:00 p.m.

    The reason they rented rickshaws is because I rent original chinese handpulled rickshaws, some of them are fom the beggining of 1900.
    The city had chines inmigrants working the town mines and they are part of the town history. Because of this they wanted original rickshaws to go with the town history.

    Everyone in that town is really nice, the cars are unlock, the bicycles do not have to be locked, is just a very healthy town!

    I really recomend to visit this town, great camping, mountain biking, gold pannig, hiking and fishing, and when I sai fishing, I mean it. My 11 year old daughter cach 10 trout in just a couple of hours!

    The races were really fun for both the participants and the expectators.
    The puller and passenger hadto switch during the race, even one wife had to pull the husband! one girls team put some guys to shame in the last strech of the race!
    The winner was a team sponsor by the local garage and gas station.

    Enjoy the pictures!

    Judging by the pictures a good time was had by all. Is this a yearly event? If so I will start training. My grip strength will need to improve because dropping a customer is not good! Bad for tips
