We have had some requests from the Elderly for help getting groceries. So Aimee Hughes and I have created a grass-roots bike delivery service. We are going to keep it very simple and make it a service
to community as part of the The Bikepacking School.
What is the Bikepacking School?
The Bikepacking School is a multifaceted outdoor leadership and wilderness education school offering programs in: Bikepacking (Traveling by Bicycle), outdoor living skills, navigation, wilderness medicine, no trace ethics, bicycle maintenance, and disaster relief/ response including delivery services in times of pandemic.
Here are the basics:
Healthy Bike Delivery- good for you, environment and community:
Groceries, dry goods, restaurant/ bakery delivery.
Just email or text what you need and we will get details from you. We will go to store, masked and gloved, buy the items needed, and deliver them to your home.
You can pay us by cash, check, or Venmo, and there will be a charge for services rendered. This is a donation based service: 20% of total bill ($20 minimum delivery fee), but if times are tough, we would be happy to do this service for the community for free. Remember we are doing this by bicycle.
We can delivery a wide variety of goods and large amounts with the use of trailers.
Who is this service for ?
Elderly, immune compromised, families, anyone not wanting to have to go into stores and risk being exposed to the virus.
Questions? Just reach out, please!
Wish list: Needed - Bike trailers and a small hard tail mountain bike or 52cm touring bike.
