Sprint Bicycle Messengers Take Over Tel Aviv

A couple of months ago we wrote about how the Israeli Ministry of
Tourism is investing millions of shekels towards developing clean,
green, eco-friendly cycling tourism. That’s great, but how can we
make green transportation part of our everyday lives - and not just
something we enjoy on the weekends or on vacation? How can
cycling replace some of our normal modes of transportation?
Tel Aviv is working on figuring that out. Earlier this year we
learned that Buddha Burgers - Tel Aviv’s delicious vegan burger joint -
makes its food deliveries by bike or by foot. And now, thanks to
Cicleta Sprint - all kinds of deliveries within Tel Aviv or the greater
Tel Aviv area can be made via bike messenger.

group of people who love to cycle and who love to help people and the
environment in the process. (Check out Amitai, above, whose
nickname is Speedy, and Shachar on the right.)
In avoiding potential traffic and the constraints of the road, the
Cicleta Sprint bike messengers can usually get your package to its
destination faster. They also cut down on the carbon emissions
associated with your delivery (creating, instead, sweat emissions -
which are much better for the environment). And added bonus:
they’re a lot cheaper.
Cicleta Sprint bike messengers are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a
year and can be ordered by phone or by email.
