Paul Boielle - Certificate of Merit

Paul Boielle has been a regular rider with Stevenage CTC for many years. He is a great character and will not mind that his nickname is known “Captain Birds Eye”.

He has organised one of the most popular participation events in Stevenage for the last ten years.  They are the Stevenage Start of Summertime Specials in which hundreds of people rise to the challenge to try to cycle to Lavenham (210 kilometres); Thaxted (115 kilometres) or Reed and Hare Street (62 kilometres) on the day the clocks change. Last year there were 250 rider, numbers down due to poor weather forecast which didn’t actually materialise.

Paul has been treasurer of Stevenage CTC for many years (no one currently in the group can remember anyone else doing it!).  The group celebrates its silver jubilee in 2014.

Paul is also a representative on the Hertfordshire CTC county committee and a prodigious leader and sweeper of local cycle rides. (led 19, swept 11 in 2013).
