In January 2012, I weighed 17lbs / 7.7kg heavier than I do this January. A big part of it was a change in diet and cycling to help me stay in shape. I just started cycling in May of 2012 and the most difficult part of this Rapha challenge was time! As a father of two boys (5 and 3), I couldn't have done this without the support of my wife.

I saw areas of the San Francisco Bay I haven't seen before! Check out my pics on Instagram and feel free to follow me. I highly recommend anyone to get into cycling, it's a great way to get exercise, meet new friends, and see the world around you.

If you are wondering how I got those angles, I used an XShot: amzn.to/131phva

On my handlebars, I used the K-Edge GoPro Mount: amzn.to/WrsbCv
