Great movie! In early December 2009 I rode a (geared) bike around the perimeter of Manhattan. For the portion of that ride that I was forced to ride on 2nd and 3rd Avenue East, I felt exactly like the bike messengers in the movie. It was a real fight for your spot on the road with no time to relax -- at any moment a bus, truck, or cab could pull into your lane and rear-end or side-swipe you. Very scary! And *I* was trying to minimize risks, rather than multiply them trying to be an efficient messenger.Wow... crazy stuff. Loved the messenger race.
