Miami bike messengers?

So I've been looking for a job for a couple months now, and the first one I got called in for an interview I was turned down for not having a car. Which made me wonder if theirs any sort of bike messengering going on in downtown Miami. Anybody have any ideas? Any help would be appreciated thanks.

Alex,

If you can afford then you could opt for a second hand bike/motorcycle. And for getting the accessories like helmet etc i can recommend a shop that offers heavy discounts is motorcycle center.
Bikers are somehow defined by apparel that they use. Anywhere you would wish to buy your motorcycle apparel, it is always best to be a wise buyer and get the best out of your money.
Part of your apparel is the helmet as well. If you want to be safer, you need to purchase any of the HJC helmets.

Hope it helps in some way!

Gareth,

It's a good recommendation, however, I'm pretty sure that Alex is inquiring about bicycle messenger jobs.

A quick search of the Internet reveals a couple.

I already sent both those places, and a couple others emails, and no dice. They haven't even responded. Thank you though.
