    Delivering presents via bicycle - Newberg Graphic

    With the holiday season in full swing, the brown UPS delivery trucks are seemingly everywhere around town. Oftentimes, their seasonal helpers are riding shotgun or using hand trucks to deliver boxes.

    This year UPS also has a bicycle delivery service. Working out of the UPS Store adjacent to the Newberg Fred Meyer store, Dean Hergert, 46, is delivering parcels on two wheels five mornings per week.

    “I’m in between jobs and needed some exercise,” Hergert said of the reason he applied for the job. He was interviewing for a helper’s position a few weeks ago, along with dozens of others when the group was asked who would like to deliver by bike. Hergert said that only a couple of people raised their hands.
