In Memoriam

Jen Zen passed away on August 19th, 2018. She courageously fought cancer for so long and demonstrated her incredible strength. Jen touched the hearts of so many: decades of messengers, clubs, concert makers, sport arena providers, wherever she went- she made friends all over- she was a Queen.

It is hard to imagine this world without her. She will be cherished always.

Death Race Messenger Memorial 2018 by the New SFBMA PRESIDENT Taylor Martinez

Apr 252018
This past Friday the thirteenth of April I had the honor of hosting our first ever Death Race Messenger Memorial and I am supremely excited to announce that it was a shining success. We had thirty-two racers participate, each carrying a commemorative wheel honoring one of the many fallen messengers that formerly rode these very streets of San Francisco that we all still navigate today. I believe that it is important to note that while only a small number of them were struck and killed in traffic, many more were victims of overdose, suicide, and perpetual poor self-care; a harrowing reminder of the struggles of addiction and mental health that are still pervasive within our community of freedom seekers. We all know how exciting it can be to live life on the edge, but we also cannot ignore the dangers of pushing the limits too far.
On a more positive note, we raised money for the Broken Bones fund and had a podium of three actual active working messengers. It was a very successful alleycat all around. The SFBMA would like to extend a hearty thank you to everyone who came out to participate, all of our sponsors, and Thee Parkside for hosting an awesome after party. May there be many more events like this to come.
Sincerely your President,
Taylor Martinez
P.S. a special Thank You to Mongo Hanx 153 for the amazing artwork. You really crushed it this time man!
