CMWC is coming soon, August 2012

The 2012 Cycle Messenger World Championships (CMWC) is coming to Chicago, August 2nd-5th.

Nice artwork seen on Urbancyclistworldwide.com:

Here is a poem about the world’s by warrior poet, Kurt Boone:
CMWC
by Kurt Boone

Cycle world
Riding on the edge
For big business knows
my name.

Who is the fastest bicycle
messenger in the world.
In the Windy City we will see.

Coming from New York City
Boston
Tokyo
Montreal
Philadelphia
Brisbane
Vancouver
Toronto
Dublin
Berlin
Sydney
Lausanne
San Francisco
Auckland
Warsaw
Copenhagen
London
and other cities
of big business.

It’s not just the race
at 2012 Chicago Cycle Messenger
World Championships.

It’s big fun and games
and the parties won’t stop.

Don’t expect the riders to be slow,
but to be extremely fast. As I write
in my Freitag notepad.

Riding CTA and I know
Michigan Avenue. As we
messengers head over to
Soldier Field to see who
will be number one.

Being a messenger is so much fun.

I’m going to have some on the spot twitter reports from a couple of couriers attending,
@Courier429 from Cleveland, Ohio and @JeffPhila out of Philly. Be on the look out for their #CMWC hashtags live from the mayhem.

If you need a good off line bike map of Chicago for your iphone, check out what my buddy, Steve Vance did. He crafted his own map and made it downloadable to be seen off line.

Find out more at the app store.
