Paul has been a familiar face to cyclists attending events and activities in the Yorkshire region and nationally within Cycling UK for many years, active with his local District Association, as a Right to Ride representative and on the York Cycle Show committee.
His particular strength has always been in publicity and marketing where he has made himself one of the voices of cycling in York.
His nomination for this award recognises that even by Paul’s high standards 2005 was a busy and successful year.
As a campaigner he has been working closely with rail company GNER which has seen them pick up awards in two successive years for services to cyclists – nominated for initiatives proposed by Paul.
But his most challenging role has been taking on the chairmanship of the York Cycle Show at a very demanding time because the event was disrupted by Royal Ascot coming to York. Under his leadership a new show co-ordinator has been appointed and the show is looking forward to a strong future.
