Braking News

Today we took the enlightened step of hiring a couple of bicycles for transport. Let it be duly noted that riding a bicycle is just as easy as riding a bicycle.

The steeds that one would hire in south east Asia come in one of two flavours. A adventurous looking mountain bike resplendent with gears, shock absorbers and neon paint. The second more desirable option is a lazy looking retro model, no gears and if you are lucky a bell to ring.


The benefits of cycling the streets are numerous and it is a crime that more concessions are not given to cyclists in more developed countries. After a good stint of cycling today I have a few findings to share with you all.

-The brakes on bicycles work better than scooters and quad bikes

-It is far easier to smile whilst riding a bicycle

-Cycling lends itself very well to recording ride-by videography.
