Malawi Via Fixed-Gear Bicycle

As he did with his beautiful fixed-gear bicycle tour of Bali, my good friend Josh in Jakarta, created another video full of lush images — this time in the paradise-like lands of Malawi.

Along with the video he sent me, Josh wrote:

Malawi is a Southern African nation with a warm heart, a friendly smile and teetering on the brink of an economic catastrophe. So hop on your velocipede and join Josh Estey as he meets the people of Malawi. — MataHati Productions

STAY TUNED: Upcoming fixed-gear videos from Zanzibar and Addis Ababa will be posted soon, so subscribe to this YouTube channel and get your travel fix.

And for all you gear-geeks who inevitably ask me, here is the technical stuff: Surly SteamRoller, Nitto Albatross bars, Brooks, fixed 47×17, no brakes, no trick photography, straight editing, music recorded off Malawi FM radio (so I don’t know artist), Bogen C-clamp with ball head for mounting on bike, a tripod, Canon 5-D Mark II, 16mm, 24mm, 50mm, 135mm, 17-35mm, 70-200mm, edited on MacBook Pro with Final Cut Pro, shot over the course of three afternoons.

Please feel free to share your thoughts about the video, as well as any recollections of your own travels.
