Always a fan of cycling, Matthew Kest used to ride a lot as a kid. His favorite rider is Greg LeMond. After living overseas and on the east coast, Matthew moved back to Los Angeles and was re-introduced to cycling in 2011 as a way to lose weight. He then started training for charity century rides, and still participates in Bike 4 Chai, a 180 mile ride that raises money to help children with pediatric illness. Matthew now rides as a Road Category 4 for Bicycle.net.
