» (18-June)  Alumni Newsletter!  I guess we shuttled around enough alumni during graduation weekend to draw the attention of the Alumni Association.  We are featured in this month's Alumni e-Newsletter.  There's even a video segment, filmed in the 100+ degree steamy VA heatwave!

(7-June)  Wedding Rickshaw!  After a few parade laps, the bride and groom together rolled happily into the night.  See the photos.

(18-May)  UVA Graduation 2008!  Happy Rickshaw brigtened the already-beautiful day and pedaled about 500 people around Grounds.

» (25-April)  Happy Rickshaw on TV!  We were featured on A Greener Charlottesville. Read the article.
