The gringo Owner
It was 2007 when Kansas born Co-Owner Peter Murphy Lewis found himself in a rut both professionally and personally. He had many past successes after studying International Relations, living in Santiago and working as a professor in different universities. Beyond academics, he felt as if he was missing a real connection with people and struggled to fill that empty void.
Peter worked 3 jobs and pushed himself to the limits. He ended up in therapy, excessively drinking, and overall, undergoing heavy bouts of stress. Nothing was giving him meaning or even contentment. An epiphany came to light in 2007: he realised drastic changes had to take place. This set the birth of La Bicicleta Verde into motion. Weeks later, he found his business partner Joel Martinez to begin their endeavor into the wonderful unknown together.
