Boda Boda NYC: The Rookie Race

To avoid your bank accounts being drained by the queues of NAHBS builders, I’ll start dropping in normal content these next few days…

The Rookie Race is the “warm up” to Monster Track. So once again Boda Boda took to the streets to cover another fast-paced alleycat in NYC but this one’s got an unexpected ending.

Remember, in Boda Boda videos, #neverreadthecomments

REload Bags: Monster Track 15 Prize Bag
Monster_Track-15-RELOAD

Monster Track is this weekend in NYC and that means there will be a prize bag up for grabs. Not just any prize bag either. Philly’s REload Bags have been sponsoring the event for ten years and each year, their designs just keep getting better and better.

Rather than a messenger bag, Roland went with a Flight Pack. My personal favorite bag in REload’s line.

Now the question: who’s gonna win this?

Man, I miss the shit out of NYC this time of year. Everyone is anxious about Monster Track! Scoop up one of these shirts at Affinity. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Monster Track events, parties and prize money. Sounds good to me!

TCB Courier: Rubber Side Down Long Sleeve
TCB

I see this shirt and I immediately think of Irate, Terror, Bane and other east coast hardcore bands of the 90’s. Seriously, the east ruled HxC in those days! I’m just stoked to see the spirit and the somewhat questionable design choices living on in modern times with shirts like this. Kick it up and keep that rubber side down with TCB Courier!

Trevor Hughes Documented 90’s Toronto Bike Messengers

Photos by Trevor Hughes

Before the #MessLife hashtag, photographers like Trevor Hughes took to the streets with their 35mm cameras to document the lives of bike messengers. Projects like this inspire me to get out more with my camera and that’s saying something. These are some of the best messenger portraits I’ve seen. Love the Fat City Cycles cap!

See the full photoset at Trevor’s Flickr!

Winter Won’t Stop Us

Speaking of snow… Fox 9 in Minneapolis did a feature on bike messengers who work all winter long in the midwestern cold and they just so happened to feature SK!
