Derby bicycle courier
29.11.08 by Buffalo Bill

This from Derby Evening Telegraph:

In 1981, the then employment secretary Norman Tebbitt famously suggested that unemployed people should get on their bikes and look for work. Today, with unemployment on the rise again, that is exactly what Alex Wells has decided to do. At the start of October, architectural technician Alex was made redundant from his job at a practice in Nottingham, due to the downturn in the construction industry. He has now decided to turn his cycling hobby into a business by setting up a bicycle-powered courier company called City Cycle Couriers Derby.

I am sure that all Moving Target readers will wish him all the best. Not least because he has started at the beginning of winter! Rubber-side down, get some overshoes and maybe see you sometime soon, Alex.

  2. Hi Alex I was wondering if there were any potential vacancies coming up as a cycle courier. I am a keen cyclist myself and would enjoy this.
