Ella's Pedicab is a new pedal-powered transportation service in the Lake Anne area of Reston. Owner Paul Walsh, a Lake Anne area resident for over 10 years, offers inexpensive rides in the Lake Anne area including riding to nearby Reston Town Center. We wish Paul the best of luck and hope that he joins us in our goal of making Fairfax more bike-friendly.

Pedicab Lets You Tour Reston With Pedal Power is a Reston Patch article:
There is a new method of transportation for Restonians - a pedicab is now running at Lake Anne Plaza.

A pedicab is an environmentally friendly bicycle-powered rickshaw. They are popular in cities and in tourist areas, such as a beach boardwalk.

Reston resident Paul Walsh recently opened up his new business - Ella's pedicab - and is offering rides in and around Lake Anne. Ella stands for "Enjoying Life at Lake Anne."

"I have wanted one here for years," says Walsh, 53. "Now that the Metro is coming in, there might be potential for this form oif transportation."

Walsh was out at Saturday's Freezin' for a Reason Virginia Polar Dip showing off his new pedal powered vehicle. He says he will regularly be out on the plaza offering 10-minute rides for $3 a person ($5 a duo).

He will take someone as far as Reston Town Center or other Reston destinations. Fares are roughly a dollar per minute above the base price. Rides are $5 more after dark.

He is also available for special events for $75 an hour.

Want to take a ride? Call Walsh at 703-951-ELLA.

Thanks again,

Good luck Paul. I plan to check out the pedicab soon.
