Matthew, a father in a family overflowing with creativity, finds his sanctuary and thrill in a seemingly ordinary activity – cycling with his two beloved daughters. Matthew and his wife Pamela, both avid enthusiasts of imagination and creativity, have instilled a profound love for exploration and adventure in their children. For Matthew, each bike ride represents more than just a physical journey; it’s an opportunity to bond with his daughters, uncover hidden treasures, and weave tales that will linger in their hearts forever.

Matthew loves cruising around the city with his daughters, showing them unique spots and introducing them to new experiences along the way. These rides not only open their minds to fresh ideas but also offer a much more exciting alternative to getting around town. With the family’s Tern GSD, his daughters ride comfortably on the rear rack. As they pedal through Brooklyn’s neighborhoods, the family finds enjoyment in the little things like pointing out airplanes in the sky above, checking out the animals in the nearby parks, or even having the ability to easily pull up to the front of the ice cream shop for a quick treat.

Their bicycle enhances their daily life by filling it with more excitement, fresh air, and effortlessly eliminating time-consuming tasks like searching for parking spots or the difficulty of navigating public transportation. Together, they navigate the lively sidewalks and bike paths, their shared joy evident with every turn. With each outing, they discover new treasures and forge deeper bonds as a family.

As a filmmaker and visionary, Matthew’s creative spirit crosses over into every aspect of his life. He chooses to bike instead of drive or take public transport because he loves to seek more unconventional and imaginative ways of navigating the city. He loves finding alternative routes, seeking out hidden shortcuts and scenic detours that showcase the city’s natural beauty and diversity.

For Matthew, biking isn’t just about getting from point A to B; it’s about embracing the journey while also discovering new possibilities along the way.

Whether he’s brainstorming ideas for a film project, plotting out a family bike ride, or coming up with innovative ways to transport larger things with his cargo bike, Matthew’s creativity knows no bounds, and biking serves as a medium through which he can express his boundless imagination.

He described how he often approaches biking with a childlike wonder, likening it to playing a video game where one becomes fully immersed, finding excitement even in the most mundane tasks.

He explains, “It’s like being in a video game; you’re just completely in the experience.”

For Matthew, biking with his kids is a source of pure joy and fulfillment. It’s a chance to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and immerse himself in the simple pleasures of childhood – the wind in his hair, the sun on his face, the sound of laughter filling the air. His own childhood was spent in a quaint, rural area, where he yearned for the freedom to explore. Biking represented a longing for something more, a desire to break free from the constraints of his environment and embrace the world beyond. However, the limitations of his rural surroundings often left him feeling confined, with few opportunities to bike as a means of transportation at such a young age.

“I feel like I get to experience the joys of biking now that I wish I was able to have more of growing up. I always like this idea of going on adventures and making fun and exciting things with the bike,” he explains.

Now, as a resident of New York City, Matthew finds himself reliving those childhood dreams. With his daughters by his side, Matthew experiences the joy and exhilaration of exploration as they uncover the wonders of the urban landscape.
