Hi my name is Paul Shears and I'm the racing secretary at Moonglu CC. I've been involved in cycling most of my life - from early BMX racing aged 10 with my big sister, mountain biking around the North Yorkshire Moors, to following the Tour de France every summer in July.

It's fair to say I'm obsessed with all things cycling but especially road cycling. It's also fair to say I like to ride hard and fast and not really happy till I've pushed myself out of my comfort zone on long days in the saddle. Having said all that I like nothing more than a nice cafe stop just so long as the coffee is good or the tea is strong!

My hopes are that I can pass on my enthusiasm and knowledge of this sport to anybody wanting to further advance themselves, have a go at racing/time trailing or fancy smashing it up in the high mountains of Europe. This is hopefully the first steps of a new and exciting time for our club and the possibilities are endless so come and be part of it.
