Until this past weekend, bike messengers to me were those crazy guys dodging around my SUV in traffic with ripped thighs and sick tattoos oozing a coolness that took me back to my High School days and made me feel awkward and insecure.
After attending the Quake City Rumble bike messenger event this weekend? Well, they still have ripped thighs and sick tattoos, but I also realized they have a camaraderie amongst them you wouldn’t believe, that there are more lady bike messengers than you can imagine, and that they’re all unnecessarily nice to intruders with cameras who don’t know anything about bikes.
