triple rush...

travel channel is taking a stab at showcasing bicycle messengers and the daily stuggle...



Triple Rush gives you an insider's look at the chaotic workings of 3 different NYC courier companies as they battle for survival in this intensely competitive industry. We'll witness the bike messengers' hair-raising dashes through busy Manhattan streets -- speeding between cars, racing through red lights and doing battle with taxicabs -- all to earn a few dollars and support their lives in the fast lane. We'll also meet the dispatchers, who balance the needs of messengers who want non-stop, lucrative runs, customers who want excellent service and owners who want kick-ass couriers who don't make mistakes.

head here for some more info, pics, and videos. this looks pretty promising. looks like they'll look at the whole industry, from the inside out and not just the bicycle messengers. should be interesting. remember, it all goes down thursday, april 14th, 10pm eastern. thats waaaaaaaaay past my bedtime so i'll just dvr the show...ha!

its always nice to see bicycle messengers get tv time...peace.
