BikeDenver is pleased to introduce you to Peter Thulson, our April choice for Bike Hero of the Month! Our Bike Hero awards help showcase the diversity of citizen-cyclists and the people who support them in Denver. BikeDenver’s Bike Hero of the Month Program highlights one person each month, and helps encourage people to bike by telling their personal story.
Meet Peter Thulson: Peter has been commuting by bike for twenty years – obsessively for the last five years. He lives in the Alamo Placita neighborhood, at 5th and Ogden, and rides to Rocky Mountain School of Expeditionary Learning at 1700 S. Holly, where he teaches first grade. Peter has two bikes and loves his ten mile roundtrip commute, which he rides year round regardless of the weather.
Why Peter rides: Maybe it’s because he’s a teacher, but Peter’s philosophy is simple, easily expressed and easy to relate to. He says: “It makes me happy getting there on my own power. Plus, I enjoy the air,
animals, people – all the creatures I cross paths with on the Cherry Creek Trail.”
To nominate a Bike Hero, please send a photo and a brief description of why you think they should be recognized (100 words or less) to info(at)bikedenver.org.
