>> History:
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> From
>> 1900-1950 all of the newspapers in Paris were delivered by bicycle.
>> Each year there was a "Newspaper delivery criterium"

>> first “alleycats” (of which, the legendary Panamalleycat is in
>> its 8th year.)
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> In

>> that have been held in Switzerland, throughout Europe, and worldwide.
>> We immediately threw ourselves into this fantastic concept of meeting
>> up, partying, and racing around different cities together. Today in

>> companies - and these numbers are constantly growing. We currently
>> have a generation of older bike messengers who can pass on their
>> experience and motivation to the influx of rookies who are
>> discovering this profession. This gives us a constant cycle of bike
>> messengers who are passionate about what they're doing, and who do it
>> well. Now, finally, we would like to be a real part of the BIG
>> community of bike messengers.
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> For
>> us, hosting a championship on this scale is the best way to show the
>> younger messengers the values that we share as a community, thus
>> motivating them to keep alive the spirit of the bike messengers in
>> Paris.
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> For
>> nearly 10 years, we have all taken advantage of and participated in
>> numerous championships - worldwide, European, and national.
>> Now
>> we want to give back all of the happiness, joy, emotion, and fun that
>> we have received to you and to this extraordinary community. It's now
>> time for us to show you our gratitude, to welcome you to our city,
>> and allow us all to grow as a family.
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> For
>> many years now we have felt a mounting yet friendly pressure upon us
>> to organise a big championship in Paris. You have asked us to do this
>> each year, but we want to be ready, sure of ourselves, of our team
>> and our ability. We would like to prove ourselves once more and show
>> you "When Paris commits, we put in everything we've got, and
>> then some". Basically, we want to thank you all by offering you
>> an insane CMWC 2016.
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> Why
>> Paris?
>> 1
>> - The Experience
>> Firstly,
>> we have proved that we have the capacity to take on an event of this
>> scale. For 6 years now we have shown that we can welcome you all, get
>> you cycling, dancing and most importantly, get you excited.
>> From
>> 2008, the Parisian bike messengers have been getting involved bit by
>> bit in the community through:
>> -
>> the organisation of the pre-event of the ECMC 2008 in Eindhoven
>> (Panamexperience 1) (150 bike messengers)
>> -
>> the organisation of the Paris championships (CPCV) in 2009 (100 bike
>> messengers)
>> -
>> the organisation of the French and Finnish championships (FFCMC) in
>> 2010 (150 bike messengers)
>> -
>> the organisation of the pre-event of the CMWC 2013 in Lausanne
>> (Panamexperience 2) (200 bike messengers)
>> -
>> the organisation of the Bike messenger Christmas party for the last 4
>> years (150 bike messengers)
>> For
>> nearly 10 years we have travelled back and forth across the world for
>> numerous championships. We have taken the time to speak with the
>> different organisers; we have observed the strong points and the
>> mistakes to avoid. We believe we have seen and understood the finer
>> details required for a successful championship.
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 2
>> - The Crew
>> There
>> are now a lot more of us, and we're even more motivated and involved.
>> We
>> have created a team that possesses the varied skills required to
>> organise a great CMWC: graphic artists, web-masters, musicians, HR
>> and logistics managers, champion chistolers, and the managers of bike
>> messenger companies. Our bike messengers and committee members are
>> from such varied professions that they fill all the skills needed to
>> organise such an event.
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 3
>> - The Sponsors
>> We
>> have already proved our ability to find sponsors (financial,
>> logistical and material) for medium scale events; there is no doubt
>> that for a championship of worldwide scale we could get together all
>> of the necessary partners and sponsors. We have received financial
>> support for each event we have organised for the last 6 years from
>> all the bike messenger companies in Paris: Urban Cycle, Dropit,
>> Cycl'air, Paris Vélopostale, Coursier.fr, Top-Chrono, La Compagnie,
>> LNC, Novea, etc.
>> They
>> are all involved and motivated for Paris 2016. We are not excluding
>> the other newer companies: Coursier.org, Excell Courses, Vit Courses,
>> Dragonet, etc.
>> Many
>> brands (Le Coq Sportif, HPA, Shimano, Knog ...) have been following
>> us and supporting us for years now with medium scale events
>> (pre-events/local championships) and also with smaller events
>> (alleycats...) There are some who ask us to do a major event to
>> promote their brands and services. Equally, we know that we can count
>> on the recurring sponsors of the previous bike messenger
>> championships. We also have the support of many bike shops in Paris.
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 4
>> - The Location of the Main Race
>> We
>> would like to have the main race take place in the heart of Paris,
>> and are already in contact with the new team of the Paris town hall,
>> who have been recently elected. Our number one objective is to give
>> you the opportunity to have this race on the Ile Saint Louis: the
>> heart of central Paris. We also have two more modern areas in mind,
>> the 12th and 13th arrondissements.
>> Whatever
>> happens, we already have a space which is open, asphalted, accessible
>> and in Paris. For this place we know we can have authorisation as the
>> 2013 Paris Cargo Bike Meeting took place there -  "Les Pelouses
>> de Reuilly." We are already in discussions to have a
>> Head-Quarters in the centre of Paris: la Maison du Vélo at Place de
>> la Bastille. Our other project (crazy?) is to recreate the newspaper
>> delivery bike races - the first bike messenger races in the world.
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 5-
>> Accommodation
>> For
>> accommodation we are negotiating with the Cité Universitaire, which
>> is available in the summer as the students are away; this campus is
>> also a possible location for the main race. There are many gyms and
>> other halls in Paris which could serve as accommodation; there is
>> also a very affordable camp site, and many bike messengers that can
>> accommodate you.
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 6
>> - General Information
>> For
>> the last 10 years or so, Paris has had to put up with many changes to
>> the roads, and a lot of cycle lanes have been added. For 15 years
>> now, the City of Paris has been committed to a policy of sustainable
>> mobility and environmentally friendly travel. The rise of bike
>> messengers and holding a championship are very much in line with
>> these values and changes. This event is an opportunity for the city
>> to show its commitment to a greener environment.
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 7-
>> Chistole
>> Working
>> and pedalling is not everything. The Chistole is a very important
>> part of the bike messenger championships. We promise to give you the
>> best of the best!
