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.

London’s Cycle Couriers Are Campaigning Against a Cycle of Exploitation

This article originally appeared on VICE UK.

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. But cycle courier culture isn’t so much rooted in its fashion as the way their unique job makes them relate to each other—they are a network of people who are essentially in competition, but also united by the precarious nature of their work.

It looks like the city of SF is starting to realize that if you let bike theives run rampant and operate out in the open, lots of bikes will get stolen. This clip features Phillip and some local messengers from One Post. Thanks to ABC 7 News for covering this.

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.
