    i guess berlin started alleycatraces in the first place, not just only in the 90′s?

    Hey Jamie!

    That picture above is not from an Alleycat race, it was a paperboy race on a closed street course… Alleycats are in live traffic! But Berlin did started the Cycle Messenger World Championships, maybe even also the paperboy races, back in the 20′s!? Alleycats started in Toronto actually, that was in the 80′s already… Ride Safe!

    earliest courier races ive found reference to were in paris in 1896 – and yes, live traffic.

Quicksilver, always for a good laugh! You will see how to freewheel on a fixed gear bike and race in SF, then turn around the corner and all off a sudden you are going down Lexington Ave in NYC… See Kevin Bacon and Laurence Fishburn, here!!!
