Alley Kat Races

Fifteen minutes of bicycle helmet cam video from the recent Alley Kat Races in San Francisco.

Alley Kat races are races conducted and participated by bicycle messengers. They happen in most major cities that have significant numbers of bicycle messengers. There have been some in Los Angeles, particularily in downtown Los Angeles.

Word is that the cameraman was riding an electric power assist bicycle, which allowed him to catch the action better than if riding a conventional bicycle which would have required more distraction of their attention to take care of other process required from riding a bicycle.

An Alley Cat race is an informal bicycle race. Alley Cats almost always take place in cities, and are often organized by bicycle messengers.
