About Matthew Garza


I'm so excited to be back for another summer of cycling.  In 2015, I rode the last few days of the TransAm, from Carson City to San Francisco.  In 2016, I rode the TransAm in two big segments:  Yorktown to Berea, and then Telluride to San Francisco.  

This summer, I'm doing my own thing:  Riding across Italy!

I started riding in 2014 when I trained for the Bike MS:  Waves to Wine Ride in San Francisco specifically for my Aunt Alba.  I was so moved by the outreach and support offered by friends and family and knew that I wanted to continue this journey.  I've done some amazing rides in the past three years and I can't wait to see my Aunt Alba's face as I ride my bike 400 miles across Italy to her front door.  

Summer 2017
Rome > Porto San Giorgio (190 miles)
Porto San Giorgio > Naples (225 miles)

After I return from Italy, I am excited to join the Pacific Coast Team for a few days of riding along the exciting central CA coast at the end of August!  I can't wait to see my old TransAm family again!!
