Biking to school is just part of the daily routine for Tomás Saldaña-Mitre. However, cycling is more than a means of transportation for him - it is a unique way to connect to the world.
Tomás Saldaña-Mitre is a junior at SHC and has a developing passion for cycling and engineering, which he hopes to combine in the future to make something really awesome. As a founding member of I2, an innovation and inquiry program at SHC, he enjoys to collaborate with his peers. Tomás spends a large portion of his free time riding bikes or researching cycling in the hopes of understanding the sport that motivates many.
"I want to just remind everyone that although we may only hear about the racing or the competitive aspect, bike riding is an accessible and super fun activity that anyone can try and that anyone can make a lifetime passion out of. I only started riding a bike seriously a few years ago and since then I’ve had some of the best experiences of my life just riding around my own community, something that anyone can try and enjoy too."
