    I see them in Dublin too, they're nice to look at IMHO, but I wouldn't recommend them in any city. My advice, enjoy the urban outdoors on foot and you'll find some good [ not thought about ] unique experiences on the way. :)

    or this: [ just in case ]

    I've had taxi drivers in many countries try somthing similar, but never a pedicab driver. In each instance I stood my ground and refused to pay excess charges. Once in Bangkok I had to threaten to call the government authorities before the driver realized that i was not going to be ripped off.
