Here’s a video of a guy in Jakarta riding through the densely-populated city. This is what he had to say about the video:
Despite the heat, humidity, pollution, traffic, poverty and general discomfort, Jakarta is a magical city where the simplicity of a bike can make you feel like a kid again.
The Big Durian as it’s affectionately known is ranked as one of the worlds most polluted city’s, with chocking smog, unimaginable traffic jams, horrific poverty and obscene wealth.
With one steel frame, two wheels, pedals, no brakes and one fixed-gear, this video is an ode to my adopted city and the beauty I have found riding in it.
