When you’ve got a sudden craving for sautéed duck feet, Kevin Sutton delivers it to your door.
Sutton is one of hundreds of bike couriers who ride Toronto’s streets every day. He works part-time for Foodora, a delivery service that lets users order food online from hundreds of restaurants. The company now employs 500 delivery staff in Toronto and cyclists make up 75 per cent of its fleet in Canada, reflecting the surging consumer demand for “instant delivery” meals.
Just a reminder that tomorrow is the last day for the Indiegogo campaign for Featherstone Two Wheels Delivery equipment campaigns. I use her for I Bike T.O. shirt deliveries whenever I can. Great rates and great service.
I have travelled 60 000 km using the bike and trailer in 5 years, I feel I can do more with your help! Help keep the Featherstone Two Wheels Green Delivery transport goods for local Toronto businesses Carbon Free! Well almost carbon free… I do have to exhale..
There’s a great list of “perks” for the campaign too, that’ll get you stuff for throwing a few dollars Laurie’s way.
This campaign will allow me to raise funds for new equipment that will take the rigors of 60-100km days on all sorts of road conditions with loads sometimes as high as 400lbs. The second set of equipment will be important when I have contracts or especially busy seasons and need to have another person on quality well maintained equipment.
With your help the capital raised will allow me to carry heavier loads, go further and to have an extra person help using reliable, efficient equipment.
We received our LiveGreenCard.ca newsletter in the mail today, and were happy to see that one of their new participating businesses is Featherstone Two Wheels Green Delivery – a delivery service that will deliver just about anything to you by bike, for just $1.50-$2.00 a kilometre, anywhere from Keele to Coxwell and south of Eglinton.
My bike and trailer can haul just about anything within downtown and mid-town Toronto—I love the logistics of doing deliveries in a big city! I carry syrup, honey, mushrooms, rainbarrels, lunches for daycares, organic milk in glass bottles, fruits and vegetables, computer equipment, bike maps/brochures, organic fair-trade coffee, t-shirts, clothing, manequins and much more!
Featherstone Two Wheels Green Delivery also hauls to and from the Riverdale and Evergreen Brick Works Farmers’ Markets. If you’d like to arrange a delivery, you can see me at the markets or call/email ahead. Delivery for the Evergreen Brick Works runs from 8 am to 1 pm on Saturdays, and from 3 to 7 pm on Tuesdays at Riverdale.
