    How many messengers are vegetarian?

    I noticed that at the messenger company I work for, a little less than half of the riders are vegos. For them, I suspect its for ethical reasons, which dovetails nicely with the whole bicycling because oil is evil thing. The other half just likes to ride.
    So how many of you messengers are vegetain lacto-ovo or otherwise.

    Not a messenger by trade, but I do ride around town with a messenger bag to do my own business things (i.e. return books, buy *****, drop off bike parts, etc...).

    Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!
