    London couriers down

    I don't normally do this but as many of you are aware as a bicycle messenger you will mostly have...

    ...no union, no salary, no benefits - if you're injured, you're S. out of luck.

    The couriers involved are expected to be off their bikes for a while therefore please have a look at the postings on Moving Target (Run by Buffalo Bill) and help if you can.

    More from Buffalo Bill on the BMEF fund.

    We are doing collections specific to these riders, but the BMEF will gratefully accept any other donations.

    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!
