Max Kirchoff delivers Christmas trees in Portland, Oregon—on his bicycle. The two-wheeled tree deliveries are the outcome of Kurchoff’s effort to combine his own green lifestyle with a holiday tradition. He began by delivering a few Christmas trees using his bike in 2008. The response was so positive that he started a business, for the 2009 holiday season.

‘Riders of Yule’ can carry trees in messenger bag backpacks, though some have carts or cargo bikes to facilitate their tree load. The two-wheeled tree deliveries are greener than other methods and they’re spreading a lot of holiday cheer.
