Silent Mountain Bike Courier Services has extended its operation with a lunch delivery component.
As of last Thursday, the company is delivering food from Courtenay eateries Go Mango, Zen Zero, Delicado’s, Atlas Café and the Broken Spoke to customers in Courtenay and Comox.
“I came up with this idea to work the price into the delivery,” said David Frisch, a bike courier at Silent Mountain.
In keeping with the environmentally conscious times, the company has gone green with the menu, which includes a deposit on items served in reusable mason jars and stainless steel tins, as examples.
In an effort to stay away from plastic, deliveries come with wooden utensils, and cardboard boxes and cups.
“There’s almost no garbage with the menu,” Frisch said.
The former tile setter and “weekend warrior” used to be a competitive road racer.
These days, he devotes his spare time to four-year-old son Coady.
“I just love the job,” he said. “Now I’m a weekend relaxer.”
