Give Your Wedding Guests a Ride to Remember with Pineapple Pedicabs
Wedding season is upon us and this year promises to be a busy one. Countless couples delayed their nuptials in anticipation of a more crowd-friendly world in which to throw the celebration of a lifetime. Every bride- or groom-to-be wants their big day to be special, unique, and full of fun surprises for their guests. Small details can make a big impact on your guests’ experience. One way to wow them is to incorporate pedicabs into your plans. There are a number of ways that pedicabs can add flare and fun to your wedding. Here are a few ideas for using pedicabs to impress your guests and make your big day memorable. Pre-Wedding Shenanigans: Bachelor and Bachelorette Parties The time to start using Pineapple Pedicabs is before the wedding day arrives. Our fleet of pedicabs can safely deliver you and your crew to every stop planned for your bachelor or bachelorette party. Give your guests the gift of safe, reliable, and fun transportation to make your big night out absolutely amazing. Transport Guests on Pedicabs The most common way that pedicabs are incorporated into weddings and receptions are for guest transports. Let’s say your wedding venue has limited on-site parking so guests may be required to park a short distance from the actual venue. Pedicabs decorated with flowers and ribbons can give guests fast, fun rides to and from the parking lot. It is also quite common for the ceremony and reception to be held at different locations. Rather than have guests move their cars from one location to the next, you can offer them pedicab rides instead! Pedicabs can be used to transport wedding guests from the ceremony to the reception site safely and efficiently. Guest transportation of this kind is especially important and appreciated for anyone with limited mobility. Pineapple Pedicabs has a full fleet of pedicabs to limit wait times and get your guests where they need to be quickly and enjoyably. Wedding Party Transports Another fun way to use pedicabs in a wedding is to transport the wedding party to and from the various locations. A fleet of pedicabs can be decked out in flowers and other decorations and deliver bridesmaids, groomsmen, ring bearers, and flower girls to the site of the ceremony, reception, or back to their hotel at the end of the night. And of course, the happy couple can also ride this way in style. Just Married Pedicab Parade Make a modern twist on the long-standing tradition of tying streamers and cans to the back of a car with a pedicab instead. After you and your love have exchanged vows and that first kiss as spouses, hop on the back of the pedicab for a low-carbon-footprint parade through town. People will clap and cheer for you while your personal chariot takes you on a romantic ride as newlyweds. Sightseeing Rides Around Town Why not treat your guests, especially out of towners, to a sightseeing tour around the city? Guests can take a break from the dance floor to hit the streets instead for a pedicab sightseeing tour to show off the highlights of the wedding destination. Pineapple Pedicabs is well versed in Reno art, history, and culture and can accommodate groups up to ten on a tour of the couple’s choice. This use of pedicabs can make for a very memorable experience your guests won’t soon forget. If you and your beloved are planning to get hitched in Reno, Pineapple Pedicabs can help. From simple guest transports to wedding party parades or fully-formulated sightseeing tours, Pineapple Pedicabs would love to be a part of your big day.
Happy Birthday Pineapple Pedicabs!
Two years! Woooohoooo!!! Happy 2nd Birthday Pineapple Pedicabs! To celebrate, I would like to share the birth story of Pineapple Pedicabs with you. Every September in Reno, we have the Great Reno Balloon Race at San Rafael Park. In 2018 my friends and I attended the balloon race. At the end of the event, we were waiting for a cab, an hour goes by, and we are still waiting with no end in sight. As we grew impatient, I started to wonder, where are the pedicabs? I looked at my friends and asked, "Have you guys ever seen pedicabs in Reno?!" My friends looked around, puzzled as we all realized that there were no pedicabs in Reno. "OMG! That's it, I'm gonna start a pedicab business in Reno!" (Photo below was taken during this conversation) That was all I needed, an idea. From the first time I stepped foot in Reno, I was in love. It was my dream to move to The Biggest Little City, all I needed was a way to support myself, and now I had it! Eight months later, after loads of research, talking to numerous people and other local businesses, I opened Pineapple Pedicabs on May 17, 2019. I have been passionate about pedicabbing since the first time I ever drove a pedicab in Key West, FL, in 2012. I couldn't wait to bring my pedicab passion to Reno. Reno is a rad, progressive, artsy town that needed local, environmentally-friendly transportation to show locals and tourists all that Reno had to offer. I came up with the name Pineapple Pedicabs since pineapples are the international symbol of friendship and hospitality. Also, I wanted to bring some of that Key West tropics vibe to the desert. Did I mention the alliteration; it's fun, go ahead, say it out loud, Pineapple Pedicabs! In 2019 I bought my first pedicab and named him Keeno in honor of my dog that had passed the same day. The first summer was fun and a huge growing experience. In Reno, it was challenging to find someone who even knows what a pedicab was. People were so shocked; they thought my pedicab was an art piece going to Burning Man. I converted Keeno into not only another form of transportation but an experience. To raise awareness, I started giving free rides down the main strip to show bystanders what they were missing. Pineapple Pedicabs is now a staple in Reno that locals and tourists enjoy. We have grown to have employees now riding the other pedicabs. These employees represented the Pineapple Pedicab brand and offered more rides in different parts of the town. In fact, the following year, my team and I were able to attend the Great Reno Balloon Race and offer rides to the attendees. Below is one of our pedicabs at the Great Reno Balloon Race in 2019. We have also started doing specialized tours around Reno. Reno isn't known for its art, but it is rich in Murals and sculptures scattered throughout the city. On my tours around Downtown, Midtown, and the Riverwalk, you get a private, informative tour around some of Reno's most hidden yet spectacular pieces. This 2021 summer, Pineapple Pedicabs will start the season with five pedicabs rolling around Reno, providing safe, COVID-friendly transportation. We look forward to seeing you out there!

April was hoppin’ for Pineapple Pedicabs! Did you see the traveling egg or catch our interview on the news?! We had a very Hoppy Easter at the Midtown Easter Egg Hunt, the first event in Midtown since the pandemic began. Our drivers and riders were taking selfies with all the eggs, and plenty of people cashed in on a discounted ride by finding the super special and hard-to-spot Pineapple Pedicabs Egg. Our egg was on the move as it was attached to the pedicabs! Locally-owned Midtown businesses had a great weekend welcoming back customers and starting to recover from the major hit of the pandemic.

Pineapple Pedicabs Reno Event Round Up for January
Happy New Year! Just like that, we blinked and it's 2022! We are confident that 2022 is going to be one for the record books in all the positive ways! We sure hope you enjoyed the holiday season as much as we Pineapples did. We had loads of fun last month and can't wait to share some of the highlights with you. 🌨Holy Snow! 🌨 How about that White Christmas in Reno?! We sure needed the precipitation and of course, wintry weather always heightens the Christmas spirit. That being said, winter weather can be dangerous for the drivers and riders of our pedicabs. Due to safety reasons, our pedicabs have been hibernating quite a bit lately. 🚴Winter Riding Policy🚴 Pineapple Pedicabs is open year-round! Just like the post office, you can count on us to be there delivering every single season. What about winter you ask? We do have to be careful about that! Our top priority is the safety of our team and the riders who rely on us to get them to their destination. We will be out providing rides as long as we can do so safely. Cold weather, including snow, will not keep us off the streets providing eco-friendly rides! But if there are dangerous conditions, such as ice, we have to park our pedicabs and wait for safer weather. ⚡️2021 Recap and Highlights⚡️ Check out this Reel that shows a little re-cap of our month and our year! 🌟Our fleet of pedicabs expanded in March when we added Granny, Uncle James, and Leta to our pedicab pack! These 3 beauties came to us from Portland, Oregon. 🌟Our team also grew in 2021 with the addition of some new drivers that we absolutely couldn't do without! Thanks to Jonathan, David, Dave, Otis, Sally and Alyssa! It has been great to have you guys as part of the Pineapple Pedicabs family! 🌟We started offering a wider selection of tours in 2021. We added tours of Downtown, Burning Man, the Brewery District and our special holiday edition, Twinkle Tours! 👉Stayed tuned for the new tours coming in 2022!👈 🌟We established a slew of new partnerships with some awesome local businesses! Thank you to everyone that worked with us last year, including... Rum Sugar Lime The Long Drink Reno Aces This is Reno DJ Trivia Adornment by Nicole Advanced Skin Reno Adeline Farms The Emerson Street Seen LLC 🌟We started doing our own events! Stop, Shop, and Roll was a huge hit!

Meet the Pineapples SALLY "I love living in the Reno/Tahoe area for multiple reasons, including the recreation. I am an avid trail runner and hiker, and being outside as often as possible makes me happy. Working for Pineapple Pedicabs is adding income to something I already love doing: exercise and socializing! It’s great to see Reno in a more intimate way and different perspective." OWEN "I'm a simple man: ride bike, turn wrench, drink coffee. Can be found laying on the ground fixing things or laying on the ground after crashing a bike."
