Marathon Messenger

Forget taxis. Marathon’s bike messengers cross this city fastest. Zipping through the streets in a blur of colorful tattoos, these wheelers weave through the metropolis in stealth mode. In fact, the service is so seamless, some say these messengers are just an urban legend. Next time a package materializes in front of you at an apparently impossible speed, you’ll know otherwise.
