I did, and loved it. My first route was in the early 70's and netted me around $14 a week... many times more than my meager allowance. I was suddenly rich!
Mom had a 26 x 1 3/8 inch wheel "lightweight" Sears bike (single speed, coaster brake) with full size Wald baskets in back that I liked to use. Sometimes I used my Stingray instead, but then I needed to carry the papers in a bag. Mom's bike made the route easier and the larger wheels seemed faster. A few times while sitting on the kickstand the bike was blown over by the wind and papers blew all over the place! I had to collect payment from my customers and often got tips, especially at the holidays.
How about you?
