Imagine a pedicab loaded up with 4 people, or about 500+ lbs and in the course of 6 hours, powering these people through streets.
Taking it a couple steps forward, having a pedicab custom fitted simulating track geometry, with drops instead of straights, and equipped with an SRM...
I am just thinking of an idea... But maybe it would be no good.

Or you could simply buy an ergometer and sit it in your livingroom :)
By the way. Pedicabs use low gears, low torque, and low speeds. Track Sprinting uses high gears, high torque, and high speeds.
Ever see a pedicab driver with legs like this?:
