New York City Bike Messenger
This is a pretty crazy video I found of New York City Bicycle Messengers reeking havoc on the streets of NYC. I’m worried for the camera-bicycle-mans life about every 15 seconds or so. Enjoy!
If you’re interested, here is an interview with a New York City Bike Messenger out of the New York Times.
Wow. To me, this is just plain scary. A little exciting, yes, but mostly scary! Also, this type of recklessness is often what people complain about when they complain about city cyclists.
Yeah, you’re definitely right. Riding like this only creates animosity and is certainly dangerous for everyone. I was biting my nails a little bit while I watched, but I like the video, it’s dramatic!
It is! And it doesn’t escape my notice that most of the wild bikers are male, and young-ish, and white. There’s a very specific sub-culture there and I’m on the outside, looking in.
That’s just plain irresponsible. They have some balls, but at least think about the other people who are unaware!
It’s really darn irresponsible, I agree. They do have some balls that’s for sure, glad that it seems no one was hurt in the making of this film.
