Who We Are

We get what you need, to you. We are Cincinnati’s bike courier service, serving the entire downtown area and based in Over-the-Rhine. Our focus is providing local businesses and residents with a fast, affordable delivery option.

We are comprised of experienced, dedicated cyclists who love what they do, and we are rider-owned and operated. Because of this we are heavily invested in the quality of the work we do for our clients and customers.

Why Bikes?

Bikes are faster and more efficient than cars in the city. They’re better for the environment. But mostly, they’re awesome and we enjoy riding them.

53T Courier is a proud member of Couriers United.

FAQs

How do I place a food order with you guys?

You have a few different options. If you want to order from one of our clients listed at the top of the page, all you have to do is click on their icon. Depending on the restaurant, you can order by phone, app, or online.

What if I want something from another restaurant?

For the price of our Rush (1-hr.) Parcel rates ($11), we’ll pick up food from pretty much any other restaurant in the downtown/OTR area. Just place your order with the restaurant and pay over the phone, then contact us via our Non-Client Food Delivery order form at 53Tcourier.com/rateform.

What about parcel service?

Contact us at info@53tcourier.com, or call 513-549-7053, to set up an account with us!

How much are you able to carry?

Quite a lot! We regularly do $150+ catering deliveries for our restaurant clients and non-clients alike. For our larger orders we use a Bullitt cargo bike to haul stuff around, so you can rest assured that we have the capabilities to carry your order whether it be $25 or $450 (oh yeah, we’ve done that).

Are you open on Sundays / holidays?

As of right now we are not open on Sundays. We’ll get there eventually but for now we operate Monday - Friday, 9AM - 9PM & Saturday 11AM - 11PM. As for holidays, if the restaurant is open, we deliver!

How do I change / cancel an order?

If you already placed your order with a client restaurant contact them ASAP to cancel or change the order. If the order is cancelled after we pick it up you will be refunded all but the delivery fee. If the order is from a non-client restaurant contact the restaurant to change / cancel the order and give us a call to let us know the order is cancelled.

What can't you deliver?

Dogs. I’m pretty sure we can’t deliver dogs. Otherwise we’re up for pretty much everything! If you have any questions just email us or give us a call.

How do you say your name?

Fifty-Three-Tee Courier. Not five-three-T, and not five-one-three. 53T stands for the number of teeth (hence the T) on a typical road bike’s “big” chainring– it’s the fast gear. Get it?

Riders


  • Ian
    Founding Partner/Courier


    Ian’s been in the messenger hustle for a couple of years now, but he’s been dodging traffic in the streets for much longer than that. If he’s not on the road you can usually find him enjoying a sandwich at Iris Cafe and plugging away at the daily spreadsheets. He appreciates late ’90s hardcore punk and a reception desk well-stocked with York patties.


  • Dave
    Founding Partner/Courier


    Dave is a dreamer: a man with ideas. Big ideas. He won’t be content until everything in his head becomes a reality. If I were you, though, I’d be worried about dino-dogs: miniature dinosaurs as pets. That’s a stupid idea, Dave. If you know of any good places to dance to electro indie disco you better let him know. He will find you and be mildly upset, but still very passive, about it.


  • Maura
    Cargo Killer


    Her dad threw her on a tandem when she was 5; he had to create extension crank arm because her stub legs couldn’t reach the pedals and she haven’t stopped biking since! She dreams of riding a tour from Oregon to Argentina. A little about her: She love the Hobbit (book), Thunderstorms, and Animals. Not related to the Football player.

    Here’s to another day above ground!
