This is a video. Click on it so that the play button will be revealed. Thanks! I never tried this sort of transportation until this year, on my way home from a Portland Trail Blazers' game. It was a lot of fun! Here's a video of the first 33 seconds of the ride--he got me home A-OK. I rode with Boombox Josh of PDX Pedicab--riding in style, as he put it, on March 5, 2015, the night that we beat the Dallas Mavericks!
The fellow I saw in 2009 may have been dressed like this because Rose Festival events had started, not that anyone ever needs a reason to dress how they please in Portland.
