Cycle-rickshaws (also known as "pedicabs" in the West) and much more importantly their drivers are great for short trips through crowded, winding old city streets. Many in India have rear-facing seats which don't seem to be used much and provide photogenic, adventuresome views of the commotion around. Communication with the driver can be a challenge, as end-to-end balance might also be if you are fat and there is no one else on board yet: it works best if someone else is in the middle and (as usual for exploring a city) if the area is relatively safe and traffic is not moving fast.
