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 five years, 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.
