What Gear Are We Taking? – Part 1

By |July 27th, 2015|

HI CAMPERS

The sun was out this afternoon and the pile of crap we’re taking with us on our trip was piled high in our bedroom. We made a video going through some of the bags and mats and soaps and things we’ll be taking with us on our trip. This is part 1, part 2 […]

Diary Entries of A Courier Girl

By |July 13th, 2015|

I started writing in a diary about 7 years ago, and occasionally get hardcore about it. I don’t have very interesting diary entries, its mostly about how exhausted I am or I find something hilarious or symbolic or strange.
I don’t have much time to write about all the weird things I see on the street because […]

Wobblecock

By |June 21st, 2015|

Tim grew up in the Blue Mountains, an hour and a half west of Sydney, he’s been a bike messenger in Sydney for a few years and in 2014 travelled extensively around the US and Canada, working for Send It in Toronto for a while. He came an extremely commendable 6th in the Cycle Messenger World Championships […]

Daydreams, Studies and Menstruation

By |June 20th, 2015|

I have much to daydream about at the moment; our farewell party, arriving in Japan, seeing our bikes fully loaded for the first time, our first blog post as bike travellers. It takes my mind away from work but also encourages me to appreciate it. Each morning I wake up in the softest and warmest […]

Learn to Appreciate Friday Afternoons

By |June 9th, 2015|

Friday afternoon ; The idea of rest and socialising around the corner but not diminishing the weekend, the feeling of being productive at work and the idea of rest arriving. Perfect.
The last 4 hours on a friday feels great and not just because works about to stop, everyone is on the city wide vibe, I don’t think […]

Flights to Japan

By |May 30th, 2015|

How can we convey the bigness of us booking flights to leave Australia to a world where it just isn’t a big deal? People are hard to impress, and I’m not such a word-spinning wizard to be able to smack you in the face with the intensity of this ticketing triumph. A few friends get […]

23rd Cycle Messenger World Championships Video

By |May 13th, 2015|

We collected a plethora of footage from CMWC. It took days to go through, sort it into neat little folders, colour code the folders, and then itemise until any OCD organiser would of been proud. Here’s the result of not just our organisation but of Melbourne lads and lass’s and the piles of others.

CMWC – […]

The Opera House, a destination to remember

By |April 12th, 2015|

This race was the kick off of the Pre-Event for CMWC in Sydney. Bike couriers from Europe, the US, Canada and elsewhere had arrived that day and now we were all clumped together on Foley Street in Darlinghurst, our bikes laid down in front of us waiting for Bart to yell go. I wrote a couple […]

Bart and Lara CMWC photos

By |April 10th, 2015|

Neville Fucking Bartos. He was hospitalised because he patted too many mangy dogs in central america and got a liver infection so had to stop couriering in Sydney and couldn’t compete at worlds. We knew he and Lara used a film camera and asked them if they wanted to take photos at CMWC since Bart wouldn’t be […]

The Edge of Work and Party

By |April 9th, 2015|

Melbourne CMWC 2015 had been in planning for a long time, but I can’t remember when I first cared about it. Dan and I never thought we would still be in Sydney when it was happening, I can vaguely remember talking about how we wouldn’t be there because we were planning to leave a couple […]

Day Three of CMWC 2015

By |April 7th, 2015|

This is the final clip in the day series. All the footage we have collected will now be put to creative use and put up in the weeks to come. This video was guest edited by Aaron Horton. We have thousands of photos to still troll through and poetic writing about all the people we […]
