Woops! due to a clerical error in our original post we switched Craig Maddison's name with the filmmaker, Lucas Jedrzejak's name. It's Craig who's on the bike. Lucas is behind the camera. Sorry for the mix-up.
Epic fact no. 1,083: In countries like Vietnam the reason there are so many mopeds clogging the streets is that car import taxes are so high (as much as 82% of the car's value) they are all but unaffordable even for people working full-time jobs. Craig is finding this out the hard way as he navigates on his bike through swarms of buzzing scooters on his way towards China.
Once he makes it out of the congested arteries of Hanoi things begin looking up, that is, until endless hills and bad drivers sap his energy. He limps to the border and celebrates with a big plate of chicken feet, a favorite dish in China and Southeast Asia. The reprieve is short-lived, though: on the other side of the border Craig and the crew immediately get lost in a town with no maps. On the bright side, the scenery is beautiful.
Craig's Chicken Legs Give Out So He Eats Chicken Feet | One Speed, One Heart, Ep. 3
Following a bike trip in Japan, Craig Maddison was struck down with a rare and extremely deadly virus called Endocarditis.
He underwent a massive operation to repair a valve in his heart yet 6
months later and with a massive scar right down his chest, Craig is
heading back east and about to take on a truly immense challenge: to
cycle across China on his single speed bike.
He will be on medication for the rest of his life but this is not going to stop him
from taking on the challenge of his life which will involve cycling
1,900km in just 10 days
One Speed, One Heart documents one man's
determination to do what he loves, put the past to rest and move forward
into the future on 2 wheels and on a single speed.
