Bronx man bikes from NY to Florida to visit his mother

A Bronx man is biking his way from New York to Florida so he can visit his mother.



Luis Martinez, 25, says he quit his job in order to bike to Orlando.



"Two days after I did the 138 miles, I said, 'I don't know if I can continue,'" he says.



Martinez is looking to complete his more than 1,000-mile journey in a total of 18 days.
