Take the load off: Ride a pedicab to Riverfest

The pedicab — a human-powered people carrier — hasn't established itself in Little Rock, as it has in some major cities.

But Little Rockers can get a taste this weekend at Riverfest.

Kum and Go, the convenience store chain, will be sponsoring pedicabs at Riverfest to pick up and drop off festival goers at a couple of points downtown. They'll be promoting a drink sold in the stores, Nuclear.

They'll operate from 4 p.m. until midnight Friday; 11 a.m. until 11 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. until 11 p.mj. Sunday.

Drivers will pick up and drop off festival goers at Louisiana and Markham and at the corner of Cumberland and Markham (also known as LaHarpe and President Clinton.) In short, you can lop three blocks of walking.
