New York City Bike Messengers I only put this up for people that went to NYC to jar their memory.When they crossed the street, they stopped to let by, what they thought was some nut ready to hit them. 1st way to spot a tourist,and afterwards they probally saw something they thought wasn't possible on a bike!Because you threw their timing off.When in fact they have your walking pace timed for an opening between your legs if they could fit!My heroes! In my early 20's I road raced hoping for a career,found out I was average.In my late 20's I lived across the river in Bayonne took my bike over on the commuter ferry for a job interview for messenger.So before I went I fueled up (too much) to "show em' my stuff!" Never made it;Good thing because you need total focus and concentration.Besides playing & listining to music and riding like this. Nothing has given me this rush of adrenaline and dopamine.A silver medal in the olympics was won by a messenger,they mainly use track bikes with no brakes,hold on to cabs, cabbies don't mind. For that slingshot effect.And when I found out in the 80's they could make as much as $800.00 a wk. I hopped on the ferry.
