Owner/Pilot, Trevor Roark

Delivery, cranked out.

Curbwise LLC is a bicycle-powered delivery service in Stevens Point. Owned and operated by Trevor Roark, the business launched in Sept. 2020 to provide local delivery for businesses/organizations to their customers/members within the Stevens Point area. Deliveries range from perishable & non-perishable foods, boxed goods, apparel, supplies, to equipment. 

At the core of curbwise is the triple bottom line approach (People, Planet, then Profit). Whether a business or organization is looking to invest in local people power, reduce their carbon footprint (fossil-fuel-free delivery), and/or sustain a more localized economy, our delivery service will happily crank it out.

 

What could a bicycle possibly carry? Just about anything! If there are 20 CSA shares a farm needs moved from a hub to doorsteps, no problem. Or, if you have furniture, office supplies, boxes of goods, or unique equipment that needs transport, that's okay too. Curbwise will be able to pedal hundreds of pounds on a single load. And what about pizza's, pho, pastries, flowers, soup, coffee, eggs, burritos, or egg rolls,? You bet! 


*Bicycle delivery will be available year-round, rain, snow, or shine! With 21 years of bicycling year-round in Stevens Point and tons of experience pulling loads with a bike trailer, Trevor will manage deliveries of almost any size, shape, and form. Okay, no shipping containers please!

*curbwise is a fully insured operation.

Curbwise is sponsored by District 1 Brewing Company. Thanks to Chris and crew for crafting a pale ale called Pedal On!!! - a brew that depicts the creative resilience of curbwise. From the can: "A modern take on a pale ale using select cool kid hops, a fruit forward yeast strain and restrained bitterness perfect for reveling with friends after a day of hitting the trail, battling hills or even powering out deliveries."
