Okay, not really...more like a tiny wagon attached to a bicycle. This is a scene I shot in the town of Shipshewana, Indiana. Most days the town is congested with an eclectic mix of buggies, cars, tourist buses, and the occasional semi-truck rumbling through.. The roads do have ample shoulders which serve as buggy lanes so that helps somewhat, but I still might be a little nervous to have my youngest passengers so exposed! That said, we aren't to judge. The Amish take such risk in stride, just part of the price they pay for living simply. I'm sure the little wagon is fun for the children. Bicycles are permitted in most northern Indiana Amish settlements. The use of bikes varies from Amish settlement to Amish settlement, some allow them, while others don't.
