A little Cycle Paul history: My father Paul opened Cycle Paul in 1948. When I was old enough to ride a bike I started working at the store with my father. We rented bicycles for 10 cents an hour, in those days no one could afford to buy a bicycle. I was my father’s right hand man until the day he passed away. I took over the business and have been watching the cycling industry evolve ever since. Today my son Pierre-Paul is owner and we have been working side by side for the last 14 years.
