The Kids Are Alright

Blog III: Wrapping up Indonesia The kids are alright There are a lot of things to wonder about these days. I got into a political discussion a few times, not surprisingly, with two different guys from Washington, DC. The first two days in Indonesia I had a persistent sore throat and actively worked at my denial of the pea soup smog they have here and what the means in a greater sense. [ 2,212 more words ]

Seoul for Bikes

Seoul for Bikes When you ride a city for a few days, you start to feel it in your pores. You learn how to deal with certain things. You hear it talk to you, give you direction. I was very interested in Seoul’s bike infrastructure because when I was last there riding my bike around, I remember being very impressed at how fast it seemed to be implemented and how ingenious much of it was.

Why go to Asia?

I saw this guy in Montreal in 2017 at the messenger world championships. He looked Asian, but not Japanese. When I had been a courier, the only couriers that came from Asia for the worlds were the Japanese and the Australians. Ever since I’d been keeping a stat sheet on where couriers were from, from the time that I had helped organize world championships in the states, I was always curious to find out the new countries where courier companies were sprouting up.

Teen Treks: A ride your kid needs to do

The evolution of self-propulsion has levels. It has textures and different states of mind. If you are looking for a bike ride that will instill confidence, stoicism, camaraderie and some problem solving abilities in your kid, you need to put them on Teen Treks. I didn’t ever ride on Teen Treks, but I can tell you with complete confidence, that riding a bike, and riding it far put something in me that teachers, parents, friends and family had been trying to put in me since I was a little kid.

Nelson Vails – “The Cheetah”

It was a little embarrassing. It was the Wednesday night dinner at my friends’ house. It was a group messenger dinner in SF and there were about 15 of us. It was off to a great start. While we waited for our host of the week to cook us dinner, someone put a tape of “Quicksilver” into the VCR. We were full of anticipation, a bunch of assholes preparing to rip the regrettably first in a line of stupid movies about messengers. [ 5,115 more words ]

Cathy is the pioneer of bike shorts. She became smitten with cycling when she was 10 years old while riding with the Girl Scouts. Her whole life has been a love affair with bikes. The journey and the millions of miles she's spent in the saddle led her creative mind to look for a solution for a perennial problem. Riding hurts. [ 1,989 more word ]

Women’s bike history: Leslee Trzcinski Racing Phenom

Bike racing is hard. I tried it. Wasn’t particularly good at it. To get into the top echelons, you have to dedicate yourself to riding about 500 miles per week, if we’re really being serious about it. I’ve done a lot of sports, they’re all hard, that’s the point. That’s why you practice and train, to get the competitive edge, both in endurance, stamina and quickness, but also getting fluent in the language of that sport. [ 3,789 more words ]

Women’s History Month: Bike Messengers

Women bike messengers have done an extraordinary service to the cause of feminism, just by being bike messengers in some 150 cities worldwide. There have been female messengers probably as long as there have been bike messengers, although the profession has been dominated by men since its inception at the turn of the 20th century. Per usual, little has been written specifically about female messengers. [ 3,810 more words ]

Jalonda “Justice” Hill - Colored Girls Bike Too It is hard, being the only one. It’s also hard being the first one. I have some experience with this. I have been the only woman at courier companies, often times their first female courier. I have been the only woman in Marine Corps units.

Rape and Community

The other night I interviewed Nelson Vails, a courier from the late 1970’s who won a silver medal in the 1984 Olympics. If you’ve seen Quicksilver, he’s the guy that beats the snot out of Kevin Bacon, he on his bike, Kevin in a cab. I was curious why, having achieved such acclaim, did he always reference his messenger years in all the supporting research I was doing for my blog about him. [ 2,101 more words ]

Black History in Cycling: Mary McLeod Bethune

It cannot be overstated how powerful a mark Mary McLeod Bethune left on history. What often gets left out of history is the how much white women have benefited from the bravery of Black women. In their difficult quest for liberation, in demanding human rights, we white women have always reaped the reward of their example and their struggle. So, I’d like to set the record straight on why Mary McLeod Bethune is one of my greatest heroines, and that I owe her a debt of gratitude. [ 1,068 more word ]

In the messenger world, at least when I was in it, there was a cult of Major Taylor. We looked up to him like he was a God.

Never Pretty Enough

Pretty matters. It gets you jobs, it gets you attention, it gets you a wider array of potential mates. When you are pretty, or at least attractive, the people who are in charge, including women, have a subliminal bias for it. When you are not the ideal youthful flower of a woman, you have to work a whole lot harder. Non-white women work even harder still because our society is biased toward a Northern European ideal of pretty. [ 980 more words ]

Ujamaa – Cooperative Economics

The fourth day of Kwanzaa probably went unnoticed to most Americans. It is the fourth principle of the holiday. It means to build your own businesses and control the wealth of your own community. Specifically, I'm guessing, it refers to Black people. I think it is a great idea. There are versions of this all over the place. Basically it is sectarian protectionism. [ 2,207 more words ]

The Happiness Index of Transportation

It is really fun to drive a nice car really fast listening to loud music. Not good to do it while driving on snow, or ice, or when there are a lot of other cars around. It's really bad to do it when there are a lot of pedestrians and cyclists. It's fair to say, as fun as it is driving a car really fast to loud music, it's really un-fun to hit some innocent person and kill them with your car and then land yourself in jail or prison.

In high school I took a Holocaust class with Mr. Adams. One day, when he described the medical experiments of Dr. Mengele, I passed out and fell out of my chair.

Early in the semester the class started out with a plodding description of the characters of the Third Reich. [ 1,414 more word ]

Nearly twenty years ago, in 2000, Philadelphia's couriers hosted the Cycle Messenger World Championships. It's an interesting story, the original hosts of the championships were supposed to be Boston but after a Boston courier hit a jaywalking pedestrian and the ensuing municipal fury, any hope of securing permits for a championships was out of the question. It was the winter of 2000, six months from the scheduled date, the Boston couriers were forced to forfeit their championships, heartbroken, they made the announcement to the world and a lot of us thought we might be skipping a year.
