Upper East Side: Delivery cyclist Yang Hai traveled 26.32 miles over his 9.5 hour shift.
Mayor Bill de Blasio has declared war on electric bicycles, even as the city’s delivery workers, many of them immigrants, say they rely on them to meet the exploding demands of the food delivery business. Gothamist interviewed dozens of delivery cyclists, and mapped the shifts of three workers who use e-bikes, to better illustrate this nexus of class, immigration, and policing.
