Talking with The Poorman

Matt and radio legend Jim “Poorman” Trenton of KOCI FM discuss his upcoming world record hydrobike ride attempt.

Epic Hydrobike Ride from Catalina to Newport!

On August 20, 2022, Matthew Thomas, a coma survivor and brain injury advocate completed an epic 11 hour hydrobike ride from Avalon on Catalina Island to the Newport Beach Sheriff Harbor Patrol Station. His original plan was to best his previous 7.5 hour record- setting ride of 26 miles from Catalina to Long Beach, but opposing winds and nasty currents had other plans. Undaunted, Matt completed the well over 30 mile ride to great fanfare at the dock.
