Copenhagen Bike Messengers

I always love seeing Jumbo!

“Meet Jumbo and Fergie, two bike messengers from Copenhagen, under the preevent for European Cycle Messenger Championship 2014 in Copenhagen. They tell us about how the bike Messenger job changed their life. It’s so much more than money. It’s about speed, friendship, gear and the sense of freedom.”

The third and last segment of the All City Championships got off to a wet start. With isolated thunderstorms all morning, racers began to trickle in to the start at One On One.

After a quick briefing of the rules and some last minute instructions, racers ran to their bikes for the le mans start and started knocking out checkpoints from their manifest.
In the end it was David Smith and Chelsea Strate that took the win for men’s and women’s category, respectively.

What partying is, to me anyway, is grabbing a case of beer or a bottle, booking around town, hitting trails, sitting in a park and taking a dive in a body of water, nude, after the sun has gone down.

In the midwest, that’s the way of life come the Summer Solstice and in Minneapolis, the All City Championships mark the height of such activities…
