Bicycle cart clogs Massey Tunnel traffic (PHOTO)

Traffic southbound through the Massey Tunnel between Richmond and Delta slowed to a crawl Tuesday afternoon thanks to one person who took their bike-powered cart for a highway ride.

What was reported as a “stall” was actually someone pedaling what appears to be a bicycle cart of some kind, also called a pedicab or rickshaw.

Here’s the photo evidence from the Massey Tunnel traffic cams, as posted to Twitter:

Bicyclists know that the Massey Tunnel is off limits to them, and to compensate, there’s a free George Massey Tunnel Bicycle Shuttle available. Unfortunately, this freewheeling rider’s wheels probably don’t fit in the shuttle van.
