South Shore Pedicabs
HISTORIC DOWNTOWN SANDUSKY, OHIO
South Shore Pedicabs was founded in 2022 by Sandusky residents, Kim and Jeff Gill with two pedicabs bought from Main Street Pedicabs in Broomfield, Colorado.
Both Kim and Jeff were born and raised in Sandusky as were several generations before them. When she is not pedaling around town, Kim is an Application Engineer for an Integrator based out of Nashville for the intralogistics industry. Jeff is a finish carpenter who owns and operates Jeffrey J Gill Carpentry out of Sandusky.
In the early 2000’s, Sandusky’s downtown was underutilized having only a bank, the theater and a couple of bars. In the several years since, downtown Sandusky has become the hub of the city with more than 25 bars and restaurants, a boutique hotel, and many condos and apartments. The restructuring of the Jackson Street Pier and the introduction of D.O.R.A. has brought a new entertainment element to our community that was missing. City Leaders are catering to major events such as Bike Week, Pride Weekend, and the Ironman race by bringing thousands of people to the area for reasons other than Cedar Point.
South Shore Pedicabs will be there to taxi you about the downtown or just provide a relaxing tour of the area. Downtown is fun and exciting again, and we want to be part of it! We look forward to the continued growth of the city as our business grows as well.
We will operate two pedicabs in Downtown Sandusky starting in 2023.
