VIDEO: ALLEYCATS – Bike Racing with Less Rules

How the unsanctioned bike racing movement grew from its Toronto roots into a global phenomenon.

Being a bike messenger is simple. You deliver a package from Point A to Point B. Or so it seems…

Just with any other job, the devil is in the details. There’s work politics, it’s dangerous, and the culmination of this stress led to riders needing an outlet to blow off steam. Cue “Alleycat Scramble,” a bike race held in Toronto in 1989. 

It was unsanctioned, brakes weren’t necessary, and riders could ride any type of bike they desired – alleycat racing was born.
