Footpaths, trails, tracks. All of which have existed since humanity dropped the nomadic life and began developing lands. Leave it to the bicycle for being the most exhilarating form of exploration. Even in a place like Bali…
Ippe’s Cannondale track might annoy the purists but having just put a basket on my Icarus, I can say that it’s awfully nice to not have to shlep around a backpack anymore. See more of this beauty at Cyclonesia.
I’m still kinda buzzing from my time in Indonesia and these photos from my T4 in Jakarta aren’t helping. Riding around a city like this, with 20 people can be a bit nerve-wrecking at times but that doesn’t mean it’s not fun. We all had a blast and as these photos show, were smiling ear to ear the whole time.

So I’m heading out for the airport in a few minutes, en route to Jakarta for Fixed Fest! Unless I have wifi on the plane, this will be the last post until I’ve landed, so why not stroll through the Photosets or better yet, ride your bike.
I made this modified Flag Hatchet of the Indonesian flag and I’ll have a few prizes to give out, but most importantly, I can’t wait to ride with everyone and experience the Indonesian culture!
See you on the other side.
I wanna see some Strava or something for this ride because it looks pretty damn tough based on the riders’ expressions. This Vuurtoren ride looks pretty epic. That’s Raidô though isn’t it? But seriously, let’s see the whole video!
I can’t help but think of Sarke’s “Vorunah” when I read the video title here.
Psssst. Guess what? It looks like I’ll be attending the Rocket Company Fixed Fest 2012 this year! July 15th, I’ll be shredding the streets on the ViKING track with a whole gang of #fixiefamous rukkus-bringers. See you there!

My inbox gets swamped pretty easily and over the course of the past few months, I’ve missed out on posting up some Reader’s Rides. That said, I couldn’t let Ismail’s PIAS slip away. Check out more at his PedalRoom.

The FLYRS from Indonesia rode out to Anyer Vuurtoren beach recently. Back in 1885, the Dutch built a lighthouse there. I liked this photo a lot and thought it should be shared with everyone.
