This year’s Bombing Down Broadway starts at 3pm, with a 1:30pm registration at 218th and Broadway. BE THERE! Flier is below… and above is last year’s video.
Remember these? Well, Krista just printed up a run and they’re available now. Pick one up at Lonely Boy Fabrications‘ web shop here. While I could simply bow out of Merckx Mondays with that gem, I’ve got more in store for you below.
Austin Horse worked on this event with Red Bull for the 2012 NACCC. This art-based alleycat features 5 artists, all messenger photographers. All have contributed pieces to the
event, themed on the way of the bike. The photographs are from various messengers, around the world. These photos have been divided into 6 pieces and each piece goes to a different checkpoint.
The event begins from inside the empty walls of the gallery, where the riders rush out to the first checkpoint and collect the first piece. Then the second and so on.

As a jump start to the NACCC, the Mark of the Beast alleycat went down in DC last month. Demoncats founder Kevin Dillard was there to catch all the action. Head over to Demoncats to check the rest out.
280 miles in 3 days? Sounds like a blast to me. The Beast of the East messenger challenge is coming up on May 18th.
“Welcome to the official website for the pre-event to the 2012 NACCC. The Beast of the East will be a weekend long event celebrating the bike courier culture. Expect a wide verity of all the favorite alley cats, lots of partying, all the weirdest side events we can think of. There will be 7 races during the weekend, each race will earn participants points. The rider with the most points at the end will be crowned the Beast Of the East. And after all that is done we will hop on our bikes and take a 3 day 280 mile trip down route 1 to Richmond, VA for the 2012 NACCC.
This event is put on by current and ex messengers of Philadelphia. To ensure a great weekend we ask that you please pre-register so we know how many party hats and cake to buy for everyone. Those who pre-register will get early access to couch and floor space.”
