How to Survive as a Bike Messenger in NYC

Jul 15, 2014 | 124-part series
Video by Michael Beach Nichols, Christopher K. Walker, Joshua Simpson

Ever wonder about the inner life of the pizza delivery guy? For more than three decades, a bushy-bearded man named Bill Meier has ridden city streets as a bicycle courier. The job has led him through a hard life, as this short profile by film production company No Weather explains. Not that he has any regrets about it, though. "The day I can no longer ride a bike better be the day I'm fucking dead," he says.

To see more work by No Weather, visit their website and watch this trailer for Welcome to Leith, an upcoming feature documentary.
