Man knocking on the back door of a restaurant Downtown Rio de Janeiro to deliver bags full of ice early in the morning.
Tricycle riders and their 3 wheeled companions are a usual sight in Rio de Janeiro. They deliver provisions from supermarkets, beverage depots, ice and many other things. Sometimes they even carry people inside their front basket!
Eventually you may see a delivery guy attempting some wheelies and riding tilted sideways with only 2 wheels on the ground.
Young and healthy, being a tricycle delivery rider requires not only stamina but also deep knowledge of their delivery radius area.
Next time you go to a restaurant in Rio and order a beverage, you will remember this photograph – Now you probably know a little bit more about what happened with the cubes of ice before they ended up on your glass.
