Delivering Uber Eats for 24

Delivering Uber Eats for 24 straight hours – Is it possible?

A man out of London, United Kingdom, who goes by the name of Joseph Kendrick, attempted to ride a bike while delivering Uber Eats for 24 hours straight. But what happened at the end of his journey is priceless.

What is Uber Eats? (Described by Uber)

Uber Eats is the easy way to get the food you love delivered. Its their food delivery platform that makes getting great food from your favorite local restaurants as easy as requesting a ride.

The Uber Eats app connects you with a broad range of local restaurants and food, so you can order from the full menus of your local favorites whenever you want. UberEats
