We’re loving this video portrait of Jo Min Geun, an intriguing South Korean cyclist who is passionate about his Larry vs Harry Bulitt cargo bike. In this 10-minute short, he shares his cycling origin story, from riding as a child, to competitive road racing, to touring around the country, to finally discovering and buying a Bulitt cargo bike, all in his own thoughtful and quirky way.
While it might not be a film about bikepacking in the strictest sense, it’s a refreshingly candid sketch of someone with a genuine and infectious passion for his bicycle and the way it connects him to the people and places around him. If nothing else, this latest release from JustNormalFilm is a powerful reminder of all the spirit-lifting potential that’s just a quick ride around the neighborhood away, whether that’s pedaling out to watch a sunset, striking up a conversation with another rider at a stoplight, or throwing your (in this case super deluxe) coffee making kit onto the bike and riding out to brew up a cup outside.
Check out the full video below, followed by a small selection of still images from the filming:
