Nico Deportago-Cabrera

Nico is Chicago’s boho-messenger hero. The former NACCC Champion has been a pillar of Chicago’s courier culture as an organizer of countless races, including the 2012 CMWC, a founding member of the Chicago Bike Messenger Association and an owner of 4 Star Courier Collective, LLC. Off the bike, Nico can be found on stage with his band Young Distractions or modeling his recognizable mug in any number of print or bus ads. It’s all in the hair.
