    Super clever solution but guessing taking the wheel out is a a bit of a mission? Although with good tubeless and some luck then not something you need to do that often

    Thanks! Years of London riding is good preparation :) The good thing about Jakarta is that the driving is pretty chilled compared to other similar cities I've lived in and visited. There is still tons of traffic and some craziness, but the lack of aggression makes it better

    Hehe. Jakarta's a big city (over 30 million people) so you can do some really long rides within the city. But the traffic is bad so it's not that much fun after about 630 in the morning.

    I'd actually planned to ride out to the coast yesterday but heavy rain made that less appealing. So did my club's usual 60km chaingang route twice with some extra bits. A fair bit of repetition and not the most inspiring ride given the rain and traffic. But tapping out the last Festive 500 kilometres with some 90s electronic music was enjoyable in its own way!

    Some great riding to be had in the hills nearby:

    After a slow start to the week I did my normal 70km club ride on Tuesday, 190km on Wednesday out of Jakarta and into the nearby hills, then finished the 500 this morning with 140km of solo city laps. All three rides this week involved rain, although it's still short sleeve jersey conditions here even when its raining. Pictures are after today's city ride - dirty streets since there is so much traffic here.

    Chapeau to everyone who finished it and especially @veganjoseph for that monster ride!

    Trying this for the first time this year. Did 103km yesterday to get started. But it's easier since I'm in Jakarta, so it will be 30-35 degrees every day. Need to dodge traffic and storms, since its rainy season here.

    It's fun riding in Jakarta - great cycling scene with a real mix of roadies, fixed gears, cool vintage bikes, big Brompton crews. It's a huge city but with some amazing road riding in the mountains nearby

    I thought it looked like Jakarta - Kocas flyover? Nice to get the photo there with no traffic!

    I'm in Jakarta too. Say hi if you see a tall guy on a blue Bob Jackson fixed gear or a yellow Canyon road bike
