This is what Overdrive, a long time courier, and well respected member of London’s messenger community had to say last night at Henry Warwick’s memorial ride:

Welcome to the Henry Warwick memorial ride. First of all, on behalf of the London courier community, I’d like to offer our deepest sympathies to Henry’s family, friends and co-workers for their loss and to offer our support in this terribly difficult time.

Last Friday, as a friend put it, a part of London died. If you’ve been a courier in the last twenty years or ridden your bike to work through central London you would have seen Henry working on his bike. He was part of the fabric of the city and London will not be the same without him. Tonight we will have a short ride in his memory but if you want to remember Henry in the long term, if you want to keep his spirit alive, then keep riding your bikes.

I am sure that all Moving Target readers, posters & writers will whole-heartedly agree with John.

  3. Great to read about the memorial for Henry, and emotional too. London’s roads need to be more cycle friendly.
