A Duluth business will soon deliver by bike. They aren't just doing it to go green, but to avoid traffic, too.

Northern Waters Smokehaus in Canal Park is a gourmet market and eatery that serves smoked fish, meats, and sandwiches.

In the summer, Canal Park is often congested, and owner Eric Goerdt said the traffic sometimes keeps their regulars away. So, they've decided to avoid the traffic and bike.

"We'll bring sandwiches to the beach, the hotels, or to our customers downtown that might not want to fight the crowds coming into Canal Park and we'll bring it to them one sandwich at a time," said Goerdt.

They'll begin delivering by bike on May 5.

He said they will deliver in a limited area downtown from 5th Avenue W. to 14th Avenue E. and up to 4th Street.
