Becak Parked By The Roadside

Becak with a battered seat cover was parked by the roadside

However, when you look at it up close, you may feel a little silly. The pedicab called Becak, which runs around Jakarta, is such an existence for me.

There were two Becak parked on the side of the road where I was walking this time. There were no passengers seated in their seats, and no one pedaling astride a saddle. Looking at them like this, the covers of the seats of both Becak were torn off, and they looked like worn-out, battered sofas abandoned on the side of the road. It's interesting to note that as soon as these vehicles put a passenger on their seats, it starts driving nimbly through the residential area.

The Becak's seats are mounted at the front of the vehicle, so once you get in and start riding, there is nothing to block your view. You can feel the wind as much as you want, and it's sure to be a great feeling. Instead, if the vehicle drives too fast, you might get scared. But you don't have to worry. The Becak is powered only by the pedals the driver pedals. No matter how much you want to hurry, it's not something that can go very fast. It runs lightly, but its speed is leisurely.
