Peter joined Los Gatos Bicycle Racing Club in 2021.
When we asked him how he became interested in bicycling, he responded, "My dad has been riding ever since I could remember, he would take me on rides on the weekends occasionally but I didn't start riding regularly until I was about twelve. After I started riding routinely I decided to participate in my first race in sixth grade. "
His most notable cycling achievement? "My greatest cycling achievement is a hard choice. One of my most memorable achievements is being one of the youngest ever to compete in the Tahoe 50 in sixth grade. It was a pretty exhausting race as it was at altitude and had lots of big climbs."

He adds, " This year (as of fall of 2021), I am a freshman at Mountain View High School. In addition to bike racing I enjoy playing music, specifically piano and guitar.
