11th of august


this is my first summer as a courier in paris. i knew everybody in france goes away on holiday in august, but i wasn't expecting it to be so, so quiet. i've done about 6 jobs today. luckily we have a fixed (basic) salary, otherwise money would be crap this month.
it's a bit like being on holiday myself, riding my bike around in paris, with very little traffic, enjoying the city, the sights, finding new spots (like this little park in friedland/balzac) and with some time to think, read and write.
i've just finished reading for the second time "the immortal class". i love this book so much for some many reasons. the first time i read it i wasn't even working as a messenger. i remember dreaming of being a bicycle courier. i never had the chance when i lived in spain and then in england, but i knew it was what i wanted to do. it's always been my dream, since i was in school... i think. but for one reason or another i never got to do it.
until last october, when i decided to quit my job in england and move to paris with my girlfriend, and make my dream come true.
today (yesterday) i'm 39 and i'm happy:
living and working in panam, doing what i love, riding my bike for a living.

paradise weekend

"since 2004 paradise weekend has taken the traditional courier event and down-tuned it if you will into a relaxing way of getting together for a weekend of races, party and enjoying the last couple of sunny and hot days before facing the wintertime on your bike.

there were 6 vans and a big bus of cops when we arrived at jardin de reuilly. they had forbidden the naked ride. some people tried to go completely naked and got arrested. but, in spite of the cops and their methods, it was fun. merci velorution. a l'annee prochaine.
