These are the new guidelines for creating gender inclusive championships. These have been officially adopted by the IFBMA by a vote in Riga and will be implemented at all CMC’s going forward. We, (the members of the *BMA and the IFBMA) will be available to organizers on an ongoing and involved basis to assist in this implementation. Not just for Championship races but for all race events within our global community. a copy of these guidelines are available here to download
Over the years we see websites come and go. This includes CMWC sites also. As they are a reference and history of messengers. A few years ago it was brought up at open forum and on the IFBMA Facebook wall that sites should be backed up and kept as reference and a call for previous sites was made… no sites were submitted. messengers.org is where the various main events can and should be backed up including CMWC, NACCC and ECMC and other top level area events. The CMWC selection process tells us that at open forum one year out an approved city needs to provide a website and TWO years out must pay a deposit. […]
Thanks to the support and trust of the international bike messenger community, we have the pleasure of hosting ECMC 2018 – the 23rd European Cycle Messenger Championships. For four days, the streets of Szczecin will be taken over by urban cyclists celebrating and promoting their lifestyle. A variety of races, competitions, parties and events will be held all across the city. The main goal of the ECMC is to determine the fastest, smartest, toughest contestant of the Main Race to be crowned the new European Champion. It’s not all about the competition, though. Just as important is the sense of camaraderie that comes with meeting fellow messengers from all over the world. The shared experience is […]

The first weekend in May 2014 marks the 5th anniversary of MAYDAY in Toronto. This event began as a small fundraiser for the BMEF (Bicycle Messenger Emergency Fund) and quickly grew into the largest single supporter of the BMEF. As a direct result of the money raised at MAYDAY, the BMEF was able to raise the amount of assistance paid out to an injured messenger from $300 to $500. To date MAYDAY has raised over $14,000 for the fund and hopes to surpass the $20,000 mark this year! The organizers have gathered together thousands of dollars in prizes from some really amazing sponsors (AllCity, Abus, Bern, Bikurious, Cogswell Bicycles, Coupe Bizzare, Cycle Solutions, Detroit Bikes, […]
