Episode 39 – Karl Moritz (Kajomo)

Karl Moritz (Kajomo) is a trooper. In June of 2010 he was struck head on by a vehicle while cycling on a Neighborhood road in Southeast Portland. As if this wasn’t devastating enough, he was dragged 32 feet underneath the Car. He was given a 90% chance of being in a vegetable state if he did indeed survive the accident. He spent over 30 days in a Coma and several months in the hospital. Miraculously, a year after his accident, he biked a Century (100 miles). He is incredible. To this day, he cycles Fixed Gear now for cognition & exercise benefits nearly every day and even rode his hand built Track bike to meet up with me. His story is more than inspiring, and the amount he has overcome can only be understood by listening to his story. I hope you enjoy our conversation as much as Kajomo and I did.
