Eli Chessen, of the blog Tokyo Jitensha wants you to come to Tokyo.
Here is more about it:
“On September 19th-23rd and the 26th, Tokyo will be home to the largest International Bicycle Messenger Race/Event in the world. We know you’ve all been waiting for a good excuse to visit Japan. Despite the bad global economy, we whole-heartedly hope that as many bicycle messengers and their friends will attend this event as possible. TKBMA has been working hard to prepare the most exciting cycling event possible. They’ve been studying to improve their English in order to better communicate with all the international messengers who will be coming to Tokyo. Are their efforts obvious?
This video shows a BBQ party organized in order to promote the event, drum up new supporters and volunteers, and bring the organizers and volunteers closer together. The BBQ was held at Shiokaze Park in Odaiba (just a short walk from the site CMWC 2009 will be held).
Gundam was in attendance, as well. But, he stayed powered-down, so no one was hurt.
