flexible and fun, great workout
Rider (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 6 April 2018
I'm 18 and I started 7 months ago. It's super flexible - you choose when to start your shift and when to end it - and so enjoyable.
The pay is pretty good (about 10£/hour) and in the end you feel very rewarded, because basically you're getting paid to work out!
I really like riding and instead of going running or to the gym I decided to take up this job. I usually spend three hours delivering every evening on Fridays and weekends, and some weekdays too, but less time. This replaces my leg workout, and it really does miracles to your legs. Then I don't spend so much time at the gym.
Working as a rider has really benefited me in all ways possible, emotionally, and mostly physically (well and economically too).
I recommend it to everyone.
Here's a personal recommendation: buy yourself some nice warm tights and shorts to feel comfortable, and a warm jacket too or a compression shirt, so you don't get cold. AND A GOOD PAIR OF TRAINERS!
I honestly didn't imagine I would be so fit doing this, I mean, just because of this it's the perfect part-time job.
BEFORE TAKING IT UP I ALSO RECOMMEND TO START WORKING OUT A BIT IF YOU'RE NOT USED TO IT, BECAUSE YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE QUITE FIT LEGS TO BE ABLE TO HANDLE 3 OR 4 DELIVERIES PER HOUR (YOU HAVE TO RIDE FAST).
Flexible, pretty well paid, so fun, Amazing physical results
Bad weather sometimes
