Euphoria ... 8.3%

Biking ... probably the best part of the entire trip.

Not filming my ride across the Golden Gate Bridge ... undoubtedly the worst part.

I cannot believe I did not even attempt to mount the GoPro on my bag until after crossing over the bridge, but the feeling I had cruising in that crispy weather was unlike any other - maybe that is why I enjoy it so much.

It's the simple moments like the one below that I will never forget.

ALWAYS make time for what makes you happy and cherish each of those moments every single time.

" I want to pursue wonder, appreciation, and adventure. I want to meet people and learn from them and write their stories and tell others. I want to become a man that pursues virtue and character and color and romance. It feels like the people in our lives who seem to have done that are the ones we love most. If I have a family some day, I want to give them a father full of stories and whimsy and love for being alive. I see too little of that. "
