Sidelined by work, obesity and diabetes, a jolly young man named Deejay Viloria is going to bid his family and work farewell and ride his bike from Chula Vista to San Francisco (500+ miles) in the winter of 2016. Disadvantaged not only by his physicality and health, he will face the long isolated roads, unforgiving climbs and unpredictable winter weather conditions. Deejay is by no measure an athlete who trained for this kind of cycling adventure.
After his trip from the Philippines last December (2015), Deejay realized the need for a radical switch in his outlook. Instead of just surviving with diabetes, he wanted to take control of the disease and explore the possibility of being healthy both mentally and physically. In the end of 2015, Deejay decides to finally fulfill his dream to ride from the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, CA to the Golden Gate Bridge of San Francisco, CA. It all started from a personal dream that became larger and more real than what Deejay has ever imagined.
We are proud to be partners with Deejay in his endeavor. In support of his cause, we crafted a Custom Built Bamboo Bike for parts of his journey.
