People who inspire us: JaBig

Now is a good time to think about the people who’ve inspired us. It’s a good time to show that cycling can be welcoming of non-whites. It’s a good time to listen to other voices. They have good stories to tell!

JaBig is a DJ from Montréal in Canada. He first came to our attention when he rode his fixed-gear across Canada. His recent project was even more ambitious: Last year, he embarked on a round-the-world trip to benefit World Bicycle Relief. We enjoyed his updates as he started in London and made his way across Europe. Covid-19 forced him to return to Canada. He is one of the funniest, most positive humans we’ve met, and his observations about cycling, life and music are always inspiring and thought-provoking. Follow him on Instagram @jabig!

    No comment section about JaBig would be complete without a link to the film about JaBig where he wipes out in a crack on the Tuktuyaaqtuuq ice road in the Canadian arctic and like a true Montréaler it does not faze him a bit. Truly inspiring!
