~ About me and our Epic Journey ~

Hi, my name is Luis, people know me as Luis #elvagabundo. I was born and raised in San Diego, California. I have always had a passion to Travel and Discover the world. I was told to dream big and follow my dreams! So here I am doing this is Epic Bike ride from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas! My Passion for LIFE and Thrill-seeking ways, has lead me to embark on this Epic journey. What started as a Solo trip, has turned into a once and a lifetime experience.

Pedaling down the Baja Peninsula, with my Father, my HERO, and my brother, my best friend. This month long adventure will test my endurance as a cyclist, strengthen my bond with my Father and Brother and fulfill a life long dream. Help make it possible by following our journey and Donating to the great causes that close to my heart. See below for more info.

    Five years ago, I had an epiphany...it was time for an extreme change. I sold all the things that did not make me happy, heck I even got rid of my car! I committed to taking care of my health. The first year I walked everywhere, the second year I bought a bicycle. Three years later and 62 pounds lighter....here I am living a healthy lifestyle and taking on the Baja Peninsula.

He is now joining his two bearded warrior sons as the protector of the windy roads of Baja. Chris and I call him our guardian angel! He is as excited as we are for this trip! This will be the first of many Bearded Warrior adventures!

Cancer is the Dreaded "C" word, a majority of us deal with in every way, shape or form. Last year it took the life of my cousin Rodrigo at the young age of 17. I am dedicating my #luisbikesbaja journey to Rodrigo and to my good Friend Brent Summers (@brentsummers). Brent is a Cancer survivor! He is someone I look up to and most importantly, he is a true warrior. After Brent beat Cancer, he became a marathon runner. His Organization is doing wonders, please support Brent at http://helpmesavelives.com/donate.

American Diabetes Association.

Diabetes is something that is very personal to my family. Our loved ones struggle with this disease on a daily basis.
