Career Courier

From kentonhoppas.

Whether you are a bicycle messenger for a day or for 20 years, it’s a dangerous and physically demanding job. But it is also a lot of fun. So much fun, in fact, that a few bicycle messengers start out on the job thinking that they will just messenger for a summer or two, and then find themselves still doing it 20 years later. Veteran messengers from New York, Portland, San Francisco, St. Louis and San Diego describe what they love about the job as well as the challenges that come with being a messenger for over a decade. Find out what it is like to make a career of being a bicycle courier.
