Pinoy Style: “Ang Traysikad” (The Bicycle Rickshaw)


Traysikad is a Filipino compound word combining traysikel (tricycle) and sikad (kick). Traysikad can carry two passengers regardless of weight and is usually used in places where no public transportation is available.

Technically, the law forbids a traysikad from using major roads and national highways. But like many other laws we have here in the Philippines, it is not being strictly enforced.

  1. New word for me and I didn’t know that there are still trikes that are manually powered. Maybe that’s a cleaner alternative than diesel, good for the environment.
