a new business opportunity

A small but growing number of pedal-powered messengers in New York City are outfitting their bicycles with boxes and flatbeds on which they can load hundreds of pounds of cargo. I've seen the same thing here. For a few years, I've seen an increasing number of restaurants in and near downtown doing food deliveries by bike. Now I'm seeing regular bike messenger services offering bike cargo deliveries. Bring it on! This makes WAY more sense than using cars or vans in congested areas.
