I had a brief chat with Courier Marli Epp, whos working on Global Gutz Toronto.

Name, Age and where you live (ride)

My name is Marli. I am 25 and live/ride in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

What bikes do you own?

I own a nondescript black fixie with red detailing and an ’82 Marinoni road bike

What will be your next bike purchase?

Something red and light and fast.

What’s happening in Toronto for GG?

We’re having a race and having a party.

Is GG for messengers only?

Messengers only.

How does it work?

GG is a race that happens in several cities around the world at the same time, it is all the same distance course so essentially you’re racing other messengers from around the world in a time trial. The top male and female racers win a ticket to the CMWC. It’s in Tokyo this year so there’s a large prize up for grabs.

Will you have any connection with the other cities during the race?

Other than the internet? We’ll see what happens. I’m volunteering not organizing so I’m not sure.

What is it like messengering in Toronto?

I get paid to ride my bike all day, what more do you need to know?
