Garrett's passion for bicycles started in college when he was working at REI and attending Sierra College in Rocklin. He then moved to San Diego to further his knowledge for bicycles and sustainable living. Garrett did not have a car for over 6 years and used a bike for all modes of transportation. He has toured by bicycle down the coast of Oregon and California.
