Gathering in covens outside pubs they can’t afford, darting past your bus window as you sit in a jam, or banging on the windows of drivers that nearly run them over, cycle couriers are one of the most distinctive and visible of London’s work tribes. With their cans of Tyskie beer and their tipped up peaks, cut-off tights, and fixies, they’re instantly recognizable.

Mongo-RRR
Russian RIver Ride
Back to the Russian River!
May 23-25

Twenty five years was a good run. Guerneville was changing and it was getting harder to find a place on the river that would put up with a bunch of rowdy messenger for the weekend. A few messengers decided to start the Crushin Liver Ride to keep the Memorial Day tradition alive. But thanks to Karen and crew, we have a spot back on the river!
Get ready for a weekend of riding, camping, and chaos. We`ll start out at the usual spot, Harvey`s, on Saturday morning. More details to come. And thanks to Mongo for the awesome design. If you want a shirt, see Tim from Nation Wide.
