Simon Pitchforth has got this one covered and just in time. Everyone’s starting to ask: what’s up with the bikes in Jakarta thing? There used to be only a few of us, seriously. Why at night? Why Jakarta?
Well, because it’s cool and you can move faster than in a car. Those are among the reasons. Why a bike with no gears? Because you can get an imitation one that will be really cheap and look really expensive.
Why ride your bike to 7-11? Because it’s such a great place Jakarta hang out.
