      Meet Niquá “Qua” Jones. The 46-year-old, native of Atlanta, GA., has participated in a 713-mile bike ride from Atlanta to Miami, Fla. for two years in a row. The journey, which started off as a challenge by his brother, music producer Polow Da Don to one of their artists, Vivian Vega, was one that Quá also accepted. Quá, also an outstanding songwriter and producer in his own right, had been discouraged by the music industry and was at a point in his life where he needed a spiritual rejuvenation.

The frustration, disappointments and pain he experienced in “The Industry” took Quá away from what he loved most for a long time but he never lost sight of his dream. Traveling by bike on a road trip for 14 days was just the motivation he needed! It was at the end of his journey that he found that pivotal peace and self-awareness. Quá was able to get back into his music and move forward in truth, something he has always dreamed of.
