TALES FROM THE NORTHERN SOUTH

Life in Mexico City and beyond, seen from behind a handlebar and the blurry vision of my no longer useful glasses. Trains, maps, border crossing, music. Bike messenger and engineering student.
Vancouver - Seattle - Portland - Boston - Northampton - New York. One month out of Mexico and I don’t miss it at all.

Vancouver - Seattle - Portland - Boston - Northampton - New York. One month out of Mexico and I don’t miss it at all.

we think this is a great idea

What about a tour in the non real winter of central & northern Mexico? 

snailparty:

i dare someone not in canada to book and fund a tour for us. funding probably won’t cost very much if you book a good tour!

NEED A PLACE TO STAY IN AUSTIN

I need a place to stay in Austin from July 27 to August 1st, I have a plane ticket for August 2nd but crossing the border is always a pain in the ass, so most likely I’ll be leaving super early that day.

If anyone has a space that would be super rad. 

This is my office. BicienVía bike messengers, Mexico City.

Canada, June 20 - who knows? Who cares?   Fuck yes!

There are no safe roads left anywhere in this fucking city. 

Yesterday some of us were beaten and arrested while riding in a pacific protest against vehicle infrastructure in Mexico City, to build these bridges, thousands of low income neighborhoods are being destroyed and people left out without homes, plus, we are already one of the most polluted cities in the world and the last thing we need are more cars and roads. 

TRANS COUCHSURFING NETWORK - PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST THE HELL OUT OF THIS

Hi! I just started a tumblr, the Transgender Couchsurfing Network.  After seeing dozens of posts come across my dash about displaced or homeless trans people needing places to crash, I decided that there had to be a way to organize these posts somehow, and to put those in need in contact with those willing to lend a hand.  If you’re trans and need a place to stay, or if you have a couch or floor or spare bedroom available for someone in need, I urge you to reblog this post, follow the blog, and get the word out.  Everything is still under heavy construction, but the more people that see and hear about this blog, the more people will be able to benefit from it!  I know that there are so many people here on tumblr who are in need of a place to stay for a night or two, and I also know how many amazing, wonderful people would be willing to host someone and help out a trans person in need.  We all know what a huge problem unemployment and homelessness are for trans people (especially TPOC and trans women) — even a place to stay for a night can make the biggest difference!  So PLEASE, even if you can’t offer up your couch, REBLOG AND SIGNAL BOOST.  I really, really think that this is something that could help a lot of people, and I would LOVE to see this spammed all over my dash and the dashes of all of my lovely followers!!

This is excellent and I hope it helps someone.

(And of course there’s a lot of risk, but if you need this you are already at very high risk).

Being a bike messenger is not just about riding and whatever image of the job you have, bike messenger also means endless hours waiting at offices, mostly government buildings with people in suits walking around and doing all kinds of boring things, or at least that&#8217;s how it works here. Not everyone understands that, but he does, and he´s awesome.
