FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Ride hailing business Uber Technologies [UBER.UL] will offer takeaway meal delivery services in Berlin in 2017 using bicycle courier services, Uber's manager in Germany, Christoph Weigler, told Germany's Tagesspiegel newspaper.

The push to expand UberEats is part of a broader drive to compete with Deliveroo, the paper said, according to an advance copy of its Monday edition.

Late last month Uber said it was expanding food delivery services to 22 new countries.
