As uptown Charlotte threw down the red carpet for delegates, journalists, politicians and regular Joes Monday night, one group of youths was there to help shuttle them around uptown, on just three wheels.
Pedicab drivers had come to town from far and near to try and reap the economic benefits of the Democratic National Convention.
Tim Olsen brought his leased pedicab all the way from Austin, Texas to work the DNC.
"I heard this was a great city supportive of the arts, like Austin, so I thought I'd come see it while I work," Olsen said.
Olsen arrived in Charlotte on Sunday and said so far people had been really nice. He wore a pair of bright red shorts so he'd stick out in the crowd on his cream colored pedicab.
"The rain put a damper on things this afternoon but business has still been good," Olsen said.
One thing that has also been pretty good so far for Olsen, the tips from riders.
With so many closed streets and security restrictions getting around center city, pedicabs appeared to be the transport of choice for tourists and partygoers Monday evening.
Olsen's pedicab was a hot ticket.
He only had a few minutes of rest on the corner of N. Tryon and W. Fifth St. before another group of partygoers flagged him down and he took off back into traffic.
