The 4th edition of the London bicycle messenger culture extravaganza, Rollapaluza, will take place on Saturday, October 29. The event is a benefit for the Bicycle Messenger Emergency Fund, which provides immediate financial support to messengers who have been injured whilst working. In the past 12 months, five London bicycle messengers have received grants from the BMEF totaling $1500, or nearly £900.
The annual Rollapaluza will take place at the Pleasure Unit, Bethnal Green Road E2, from 7pm-2am. A roller race, open to all, will form the main part of the evenings' entertainment, but there will also be at least 2 London messenger bands, one of which is expected to be the legendary Deadley Treadleys.
Entry fee of £3 will include free entry into the Rapha raffle, competitors in the Roller Race will pay extra.
