Pedal power

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - BUSINESS -

THE streets of Port Dou­glas are ideal for ped­al­ing around and tak­ing in the sights and fresh air as well as be­ing very eco-friendly.

In keep­ing with this ideal, Quick­sil­ver is con­tin­u­ing to spread its eco mes­sage by spon­sor­ing a brightly-coloured eco cab de­signed to look like an un­der­wa­ter ob­ser­va­tory as it trans­ports lo­cals and tourists around Port Dou­glas.

The eco cabs with their en­vi­ron­men­tal­lyfriendly fea­tures and pedal-as­sisted recharge­able 200 watt mo­tors are owned by Mark My­ers, who started the busi­ness seven months ago.

Mr My­ers has two other eco cabs - one for the road and the other re­served just for wed­dings.
