Australia Post, Delivered by Bike

Since I can remember the Post has always been delivered by motorbike or by van for big parcels, but it was nice to see the other day the post being delivered by bike, all  be it and electric bike. But then again it is quite hilly around our area. 

 Apparently mail used to be delivered by bike  back in the day. Though this is still the so in many cycling cities not to mention Copenhagen......

.....some very attarctive posties might I add, but then again it is hard to look good in fluro vests and helmets!

I REMEMBER the postie riding a bike! I used to work in a suburban post office (back in the day when we had those too) and our postie would keep coming back to the shop to get the next bag of letters for the next section of the suburb. He used to dress up as santa at Christmas, the Easter Bunny at Easter and do his deliveries in a Canberra Raiders uniform when the Raiders got into the grand final (now THAT WAS a long time ago). I tried unsuccessfully to cajole him to wear a frock on International Women's Day, but he wasn't into it. Thats great that Australia Post is starting to use e-bikes. An excellent compromise.
