The 2011 Rickshaw Run!

This handsome t-shirt features the logo of this year’s Rickshaw Run and is £16.00 and available with other merc at the site’s shop:


FYI – One person’s Rickshaw is another person’s Vespa Ape or Lambretta Lambro or Tuk Tuk.

I happen to know a team that is on the Rickshaw Run right now . Calling themselves “The Ugly Americans,” the team is made up of David Fogarty (aka “Doughnut” to the Pacific Northwest scooter crowd) and Mark. All of the teams are raising money for a very worthy charity: The Frank Water project is a British based charity that is working to bring water purification technology to areas of India that are in need.

So if you’ve ever wanted to donate something on behalf of ScooterSwag for all of the pleasure this little blog brings to your OCD collecting life, please consider making a donation. Every little helps. Several teams have far surpassed their goals and I know Doughnut and Mark would like to donate even more. The “Just Giving” button is on the team’s page where you can also keep track of their exploits:

And ahem ((clearing throat)) GO UGLY AMERICANS GO!

Strawberry Shortcake Rides Again.

Here’s a new Rickshaw/Ape/Tuk Tuk/Scooter thingy in the Strawberry Shortcake line. It’s called the “Goodies to Go Scooter.” I don’t think it’s nearly as cute as a previous toy, but it’s still pretty darn cute. You have to admire the girl’s gumption to start a food cart business in this economy and oooh what a cute mod helmet. Available for $14.99 at ToysRUs.

Thanks to Cassie for this find!
