Paul grew up in the British cycling heartland of beautiful Yorkshire, where he developed a passion for riding his bike. After studying sports science and anatomy in London, he then decided to move to the US, eventually pursuing a career in sports therapy.
Paul is a qualified sports therapist, who now spends his time between California, Yorkshire and Girona. After getting to know the region and riding in Girona, it has now become like a second home. Also like Michael, he shares a passion for the excellent Catalan food and wine – and has become a particular fan of the Emporda D.O wines!
Born in the Kent countryside, Chippy spent the first years of his life in Girona and later returned to work there in his early 20s. Girona was somewhere where the family spent time every year when he was a child, so it always felt like home. After a career in finance in both London and NY – he never shook the Girona bug and always knew that it would be the place he would end up.
His love of Girona, mixed with a lifelong passion for cycling, food & drink, meant that he had to pursue his dream of offering authentic cycling experiences and sharing the wonders of Girona and beyond with fellow cyclists.
