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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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.

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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Everyone got a chance to ride the brilliant race arena yesterday in the qualifiers. The course was fast and confusing, hundreds of meters of red tap wiggling in the wind in front of you as you wound through the glass-steel buildings and along the docks. Some racers stressed to the core while others sailed around smoothly […]
