MEET CHICAGO’S MOST HARDCORE BIKE MESSENGER
Follow bike messenger and racer, Nico Deportago-Cabrera, through the downtown streets of Chicago as he weaves throughs cars on his fixed gear bike.
FLUX MAGAZINE - TRAILMATES
Meet Megan Walsh and Skye Nacel. They are not a pair you meet every day. They live in a tiny house tucked away in the woods, embracing a minimalist lifestyle. The space is small but the outside is big giving them room to play including mountain bike trails right out their front door. Their lifestyle may not be for everyone, but for them, it's an adventure for sure.
I created this short documentary as a part of Flux Magazine’s annual release.
TRAFFIC TO TRAILS
Life as a bike messenger in Chicago is fast-paced and unpredictable. Nico Deportago-Cabrera escapes the craziness of the city and heads out the Abandoned Nike Missile Silo to rip some dirt trails on his fixed gear bike to reconnect with why he loves cycling and prepare for the World Tracklocross Championship in Tokyo, Japan.
