I posted this to my blog, and it's been picked up by a few blogs as well, but thought I'd share here my video of a local UPS delivery being done on bike!
Edit: guess I can't embed....here's the link to the video:

they are doing it here in yakima as well
OK, sorry but I'll be the grinch here.
This is a cheap publicity stunt by UPS, it makes no economic or practical sense at all. Look at how many parcels can be carried at a time, if they only used bikes for two days the system would totally explode. It's a joke, and a bad one.

The bike delivery can't completely replace trucks, but there should be a niche for it. For example, in congested downtown streets where the trucks tend to block traffic. If they would invest in something like this:
