This priceless piece is an advice on how to do courier job with BROKEN ARM.Taken from MT internet forum,'ere we go:

'Always relax your hand before punching a solid metal object.If you really want to make an impression,punch the side window.In the middle if it is rolled up,and in the top middle if it is rolled slightly down.If you do it right the window will explode into million pieces and the poor terrified driver will see how unbelivably hard you are and shit himself next time he sees a cyclist...'

Anyone out there can advice on working with broken leg???

A wee correction and charitable events

I'm being informed by Julie from NYC that the messenger who got squashed between two trucks is not only alive and out of the hospital,but giving 'evidence' on you tube as well.I have to say i like when terrible rumors turn out to be just rumors.
Meanwhile in the Big Smoke.Friday nite fundraising old school allycat raised over 300 quid and saturday's afternoon Emergency Cat raised over 100 pounds.Well done Overdrive,Wayne and Sarah.Nice one everyone who participated.
After working last few days in the rain,I just couldnt get myself to ride for some more rainy hours on saturday nite.Although as i heard The Monopoly ride went ahead with over 50 riders cycling in pissing down rain.MUCH RESPECT!

Holy Shit.It's slow day scavenger hunt.

Scavenger hunt?On tuesday?During working hours?
Yep,that's right.Challenges involved collecting receptionists' phone numbers,getting proofs of visits to various post codes and getting water from the Thames.Did i mention getting tattoos?Yes,tattoos.
Nice work Nhatt.
Results are here
Photos are here

And what are those two pics here?Both are taken when manning a mobile check point during the hunt.

How to make that light stand stable when its windy as hell?
Wrap your krypto chain around it...

Tools of trade:a lock and a cuppa.Not quite certain which one's more important...

6th- JULIA (first female and the only female to finish the race)
7th- RYAN

plus nearly 30 DNFs-finding graffiti on the wall in WOOD'S BUILDINGS E1(place of one of Jack the Ripper's murders)proved to be too difficult for most of the riders.
