First Eco Riksha In Armenia


Dear nature lovers,

A group of young environmentalist, who are worried about the ecological situation of Yerevan, wants to promote an ecologically clean transportation mean that is new for Armenia – Riksha.
Riksha, that cyclist Samvel Hovhannisyan has made, is very popular in foreign countries, thus can have its positive impact on the ecological situation of our city.
Riksha might be also an attraction for tourists and guests of the capital.

Riksha can transport two passengers at a time.

Height 1.73m
Width 1.10m
Length 2.70m
Mean speed at flat area 20-22 km/h
Capacity – two passengers
Please join us with your bicycles, as we are going to have a bike-tour with the Riksha in the city center on August 22, at 19:00, near Moskva cinema.

    How are you going to get up the Yerevan hills in a riksha?

  2. Zarchka Says:

    Guess only flat areas will be chosen, coz, yeah, it was an arduous task to go up hilly streets of Yerevan… instead, it was such a fun to ride down the hills 😉

    Yep, that’s the good thing about going uphill: most of the time you have to get down again! ;-)-
