Renowned for its love affair with automobiles, Lake George's carbon footprint may shrink a little starting this year, after a fleet of pedal-powered rickshaws start offering rides through the village to various accommodations, events and attractions. Adirondack Pedal Cab Service is planning to offer the service in exchange for voluntary donations -- people are to pay merely what they want, say the pedalcab entrepreneurs.
