Copenhagen bike messengers | Freedom and Friendship

Hi riders, today, Rasmus, a fixed gear lover from Copenhagen has sent us this short film about bike messengers in his city. Great work guys!
Meet Jumbo and Fergie, two bike messengers from Copenhagen, during the pre-event in Copenhagen for European Cycle Messenger Championship 2014 (in Stockholm). They tell us about how the bike messenger job changed their lives. It's so much more than money. It's about speed, friendship, gear and the sense of freedom.
