Delivery bikers and riders are one of the key players that help everyone during this community quarantine.
“They (delivery men) really keep the economy running and we hope that we start to treat them better with respect, hindi lang sa asal natin as customers but also as citizens in our government so sana their rights can be protected under the law,” Anton Siy of Pasig Transport tells us in this episode of Super Ultra Panks.

If you’re unable to travel during this pandemic and you need to have items delivered to you, you most likely would rely on other people to get those things and have it handed over to you right in front of your doorstep.
On this week’s episode of Super Ultra Panks, we want to highlight the importance of delivery cyclists in our lives, especially now that we are in this health crisis. In this video, at least, you’ll get to have a glimpse of how it feels like delivering items from the perspective of people on bicycles.
We asked our friends from This Is Daily if we could be their delivery riders for a day. It was awesome that they agreed and that Ronan Capili, one of the owners of this small business, accompanied us during our trip. We had to deliver bottles of their wonderful coffee in Quezon City, Pasig and Taguig.
Before our deliveries, we went around Manila and saw how people actually used their bikes to transport goods. The Super Ultra Panks managed to interview a legit delivery cyclist who has been on this job for more than a year.
Unfortunately, Marti Salva aka Higad Pating couldn’t join us in the coffee delivery because he needed to rest after his vaccination.
You’ll see the usual craziness from the Super Ultra Panks. We handed out Daily. bottles to Khiyan Chua Yap of Aegyo Cakes, awesome mom Ronna Bonifacio, Anton Siy of Pasig Transport and LGBTQIA+ rights and representation advocate Thysz Estrada.
Plus, there are special appearances by Manila’s Legend James Bansigan, Ralph Aguilar aka @rideout.mnl and Bogs Amarra.
