MATT GALAT’S WORLD TOUR


As many of you know a fellow tadpole triker by the name of Matt Galat is currently on a 5 year long trike journey around the world which started in China and is to end in Los Angeles, California, U.S.A. Matt is a videographer and creates excellent videos of his journey and life. He posts them on variouls social media … Matt’s FACEBOOK  page, JaYoe FACEBOOK page, Matt’s YOUTUBE channel, Matt’s JaYoe website, and more.

HERE is a map of Matt’s planned route.

Sometime back Matt added a drone to his video tapiing and it has added a lot to the quality of his videos giving them an altogether new perspective. His videos were always good and interesting, but with the drone footage added in they are even better.

Most of us could never take such a journey, but thru Matt’s videos we can truly enjoy and “live” his adventurous journey vicariously.

Matt rides a yellow HP Velotechnik Scorpion FS20 recumbent tadpole trike. He started out pulling a trailer, but decided to discontinue that and just haul those things he needs on his trike.

Matt had a set back in his trike journey. He had started it as planned riding a different trike pulling a different trailer when while still in China he was hit from behind by a big truck. He received a broken shoulder (collar) bone as a result and his trailer and trike were pretty much totalled. He had to convelest for quite some time during which time he got reoutfitted in preparation of starting his world journey all over.

Matt has also experienced some knee joint pain which threatened his journey causing him to interupt his ride for awhile. Fortunately now that he is back underway so far his knee has held up pretty good and he has been able to continue his journey.

Matt has coined the Chinese words (phrase) “JaYoe” for his journey … as it means “to add fuel”. As time goes along more and more people are discovering Matt and his trike journey. Great interest is building and his story continues to capture the attention of local news media.

I have written articles about Matt previously:

If you have never watched any of Matt’s videos I invite you to do so as they just might grab your attention and not let go. That is the effect they have on me. Like Matt, we all need to …

KEEP ON TRIKIN’

  1. Just a correction – Matt’s trike is an HP Scorpion FS 20 not 26

  2. Yes, I caught it myself and corrected it. I guess I am just so used to seeing fs26 that I typed it. Thank you anyway.
