FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (AP) - Brent Brady envisions seeing people tour Fredericksburg aboard a 16-seat human-powered vehicle he has dubbed PedalFred.
The bicycle-like vehicle is known as a "pedal cab." It is the latest tourism twist for Fredericksburg and one the downtown resident is launching with a friend from his college days.
Brady and John Brumbaugh started Blue & Gray Leisures LLC. They hope to begin offering tours on April 15.
In addition to daytime heritage tours, Brady plans to offer special events such as exercise-themed rides in the mornings and business-focused events in the evenings such as a tour of restaurants or real estate. He also plans team-building rides for businesses or groups.
He will launch PedalFred with one vehicle and hopes to add a second one in the fall.
