Flip Flop Pedalin’

Aussie traveller Matt Whitehead (http://korduroy.tv/shows/surf-sufficient/travel-guide-matt-whitehead) spends a healthy amount of his time getting from one destination to another by riding his bike. In order to make his journey a bit more efficient, Matt utilizes his own version of a clip in petal, using flip flops. Instead of having to change into a pedal specific bike shoe, Matt simply slides his barefeet into his comfy sandals which are already secured onto the pedal and off he goes.
