Bread Delivery in Downtown Cairo



Who needs a van?

More than a few close calls in this minute and a half video.

Got to believe he'd have no trouble being a messenger in NYC.

Hardcore!!!

What I don't get is all those people driving the wrong way and not yielding to the bike... just like Atlanta

Totally joking.

Seriously, the man has balls of steel!!!

Loved the video; however I'm not sure this belongs in A&S.

Advocating bread delivery using your bike . This is one way to get it done.

This guy does it under extreme conditions. Ain't no reason why you couldn't.

He demonstrates how one can safely navigate urban traffic without bicycling infrastructure.

I visited Cairo and saw this delivery method several times. The deliveryman in the video is much faster than what I saw.

Didn't even see the video (yet) and I agree with you. Living Car Free? Utility Cycling? But, hey, it's a Holiday weekend. You get a pass o.p. This time.

Haven't seen the video but I have noticed more than a few YouTube videos that have obviously (or not) been 'sped up' to make the operator look more skilled or powerful or whatever than they really are or could ever be. To me, they are as bad as the people who upload Classic Rock songs pitch shifted from the original. Whhhyyyy??? The human propensity for ... malicious mischief, is unending.

He's really gluten it done. My dad and his brothers drove bread trucks in Goshen IN when they were getting started, one of them even made a career of it. Delivery drivers and riders are all nuts, they have to be.

Some of those one handed swerves are amazing. There are some sports based on bike handling but if there's no jumping no one is watching...

Leisesturm the video is not sped up but those would be some really good points if it were
