"Back Seat Rider” Photograph

It’s quite simple really. The bicycle was built to carry a passenger and has a padded seat at the back. The street has been turned into a market and is crowded with shoppers so cycling normally is not really an option. Sitting on the main saddle means the legs don’t quite reach the ground. Therefore, sit on the back and “walk” the bike down the road.

On the other hand, I have seen people here actually peddling their bike from this position. I’m not sure why they do it but I really ought to try it out before commenting.
