Pedalers Express, Eugene’s first bicycle delivery service (which delivers EW on Thursdays), has a new addition. The Distro Cycle “can now deliver 800 pounds of product in one run,” Pedalers tells EW. The Distro Cycle “has three wheels, a durable frame, an enclosed cargo container on the back, electrical assistance,” and the courier sits in the front steering with his/her feet while pedaling. The bike delivery company uses the cycle primarily to deliver GloryBee products such as “50-pound bags of flours and sugars, buckets of honey and syrup” to places such as Wandering Goat Coffee, Keystone Café and more.
