This is really sad. Im not sure if anybody else saw it, but a guy was struck and killed doing an alleycat in chicago.

I hope this is somewhat of a wakeup call to people. A “red light running contest” comes down to the winner being the person having the least to lose.

It is ironic that alleycats evolved out of messengering. When I started messengering, two things were often said. “be safe” and “dont be a hero”… alleycats seem to glorify the opposite of each.

I hope promoters start going out of their way to make “races” more about puzzles and troubleshooting than speedily running through traffic.

Ill get off the soapbox. This is just sad though.
