Bicitaxis are not a Cuban creation, however, the inventions made to the artifacts by locals made them unique in the world. Moved by human traction and using bicycles as a principle, these have become an important means of transportation in cities. The charisma of Cuba’s inhabitants makes the tour special, and scenarios have it that both, the driver and the client get involved in long talks, while the latter even helps in the most difficult parts of the roads. Funny claxons, man-made luggage racks, and several objects may be present in these necessary transports in the island.
