Paul has been riding since he was a teenager - and that’s a long time ago now. He’s been writing about bike tech for almost a decade, during which time he’s travelled throughout Europe covering launches and riding with some of the road racing greats. Paul was into gravel before it was even invented, riding a cyclocross bike across the South Downs and along muddy paths through the Chilterns. He dabbled in cross-country mountain biking too, before returning to drop bar bikes. He’s most proud of having covered the length of the South Downs Way on a crosser and last year fulfilling his long-time ambition to climb Monte Grappa.
