Cycle courier in the Observer
14.05.07 by Buffalo Bill

‘Brazilian Cycle Courier’ Alexander Garo Hagopian got himself a two-page spread in the magazine section. He’s the featured person in the ‘This Much I Know’ regular. I don’t recognise the guy, but he seems like a nice boy.

According to the blurb, he gave up a modelling contract in Milan to become a London bicycle messenger. He mentions the Palladium steps, and the courier community. He also speaks of his friend that was killed 3 years ago by a left-turning lorry. That is Sebastian Lukomski, the last of seven London bicycle messengers known to have been killed by lorries whilst working.

Fair play to the guy, he doesn’t come off too boastful, or too crazy. I think he may regret his comparison of Brazilian and English girls, which is sure to leave both spitting feathers.

  1. Yeah. Stephen told me he wanted to interview a “non-white” courier. Specifically brazilian, although at one point he told me his ideal messenger was “non-white, non-British, non-male (optional!), unique personality, passionate
    about all things cycle courier.”. No idea where he found this guy though.
