Pedicab

‘Guest in Motion’ is a complimentary service, transferring hotel guests by chauffeured pedalcab to and from destinations within the V&A Waterfront. Practical and convenient, the service provides direct, easy access to places that cannot be reached by car.

Recently, the Cape Grace maintenance team set themselves a task to convert the three-wheeler bicycle, branded with the striking yellow and black World Design Capital 2014 logo, into an eco-friendly, low-emissions electric bike. The hotel’s maintenance team did all the research required to come up with a solution that is both efficient and quiet.

The pedalcab is now powered by a 1000W 48V 26″ electric bicycle front hub conversion kit, offering stylish green mobility and making driver Sebenzile’s job less strenuous too.

Says a smiling Sebenzile: ‘Now that my pedalling is assisted by a small electric motor, I have more energy to chat to my guests and share information about the hotel, the Waterfront and Cape Town!’
