Matt Hawkins is a busy guy: he's a cyclist, a dad, a husband, a fledgling warehouse fulfillment guru, and perhaps most notably to cyclists like me, he's the creator of one of cycling's most distinctive new brands of cycling apparel, Ridge Supply.
Here's a fact about Matt and his attention to detail: he has a penchant for great customer support. When we talked, he easily recalled a time I ordered bottles from Ridge Supply and one of them was no good. It took about eight minutes for a new shipment to be headed toward Chicago. Matt's good.
This talk goes a bit longer than the others because Matt and I discuss his journey from construction manager to cyclist to guy everyone in US cycling needs to know. There are also a couple of easter eggs - about Marine life, cowboy boots, and the harrowing experience that spun Matt's life in a completely different direction.
