Who would think that delivering documents on a bike would spawn a phenomenon as the bike messenger? One part world class athlete, one part fearless masochist, the messenger cult is one of pride and poetry where stripes are earned with scrapes and bail-outs. If you live in an area where messengers are utilized, you probably have a pre-conceived idea of how you feel about these people. If you do, better yet if you don't, take a few minutes and allow yourself to be moved.
Do me a favor, take 7 minutes out of your day and watch this video. The motion is amazing, it's a nice tour of the city, and the music will offer a few moments of zen.
