  3. The first 'svajer' race in Copenhagen for almost 50 years.

    'Svajere' were the bike messengers that ruled the streets of Copenhagen for decades in the first half of the 20th century, riding their huge box bikes and livening up the streets with singing, whistling and banter.

    This year, the Svajer race was revived - aka The Danish Cargo Bike Championships.

    It was a fantastic day out. My son [aged 7] shot the shaky video and I supplied the stills. The first song is a 1930's tribute to these 'svajere' - asphalt cowboys, they were called - and the second song is from the 1970's where Povl Kjeller sings about how happy he is about his bike.

    We have a dream. A project. A goal. Quite simply, it combines three fantastic bicycle ingredients: cargo bikes as transport in cities, the all-important social inclusion and a fantastic, traditional, historical bicycle race.

    In May 2014, we want to stage the first cargo bike championships in Rio de Janeiro, in order to raise awareness about the hard-working cargo bike messengers of the city and elevate them to a position of much-deserved respect. We want to stage a high-profile event that thrills, inspires, and captures the imagination of the entire city.

    A whole day of social inclusion wrapped up in a kickass, back-breaking bike race.

    Thanks so much to director Michelle Chevrand and cinematographer Uirá Fornaciari for making our crowdfunding video!
