MessQueen X Manhattan Portage Neck Warmer

Posted on February 27th, by Squid in Blog. Comments Off

Thanks Courtney for stitching up 10 rad neck warmers for a Manhattan Portage Collaboration !

It’s a nylon/spandex blend on the outside with reflective printing for extra visibility! Sweat wicking material on the inside to help keep dry.

Neck Warmers are crucial for bike messengers in the cold weather!

Chachi on the job keeping toasty !

Caro making all weather deliveries look easy !

Happy Monday Yo, Hope Everyone had an Awesome Weekend! I met up with Jen from Dragonfly on Tuesday. It was a tough work day, forty degrees and steady rain.

Was psyched to hook her up with the new Manhattan Portage Empire XX that I helped design.

It was brick on Friday, met up with DBlocks by NYC Velo on 2nd Ave.

He got the Camo Empire XX. Holler!

Worked Saturday in the snow storm, it was crazy but I had only seven jobs and was done by 1:30pm.

Sledding with the Fam on Sunday. Keiran was Rockin a contractor bag, Weeksville Represent!

Super Sodee on the Fly

Have the Best Week and Please Ride Safely !

Want to say Thanks to everybody who was a part of my vida loca this year! We lost some great people and dealt with some major stress from this that and the other amirite.

So proud and happy to see my kids growing and thriving right before my eyes. They are every bit the healthy barbarians I wished for and am enjoying being a part of their development even when they drive me and their Mom nuts haha.

Big Thanks to my business partner Marc Maclean. You Sir are a gentleman and a scholar! Also want to shout out Jen, Jesse, Andrii and Sean for helping us thru the holiday mayhem.

Our clients are great to work with and am regularly amazed at how friendly and caring they can be!

Francis and I earlier this week

Our buds at 1 Penn Mess Center are the absolute greatest.

I started working with Manhattan Portage on November 1st. Will be riding at Cyclehawk half the week and doing design and promotions at MP the other half. Have some awesome plans in the works including a Street Team and Pro Messenger Line.

Please have a Happy, Healthy and Safe Holiday!

All the Best for 2017, We Got This!!!
