Happy New Commuter Season!!!

Trying Bike Delivery for Uber

Due to a medical condition that the scientist's call "being poor" I began doing bike deliveries after my 9-5 for Uber this week.  It wasn't bad.

My average speed was 10mph and I didn't take any bicycle-delivery-style traffic risks.  …See More
