First up is our Assistant Manager Paul who's more of a two-wheeler than a four-wheeler. He specialises in BMX (although he also skates!) and has been kicking it on two tyres since the 80's. Here's his mugshot where we think he looks a bit like Mickey Mouse...but with BMX wheels for ears.
We decided to probe a little further and asked him five quick-fire questions to get to know him a little better:
Q#2: How long have you been riding for? It's 28 years since I first got my first bike - has it really been that long?
Q#3: What's the worst injury you've picked up? I once broke my foot which was pretty damn painful!
Q#4. What's the strangest question you've been asked in store? Someone once asked me if we sold frogman flippers. For the avoidance of doubt, we don't!
Q#5: What's your favourite BMX trick? I love doing whips! You can click on this YouTube clip to take a look at a few cool ones...
Paul's a star when it comes to giving advice to budding and seasoned BMX-ers alike.
If you have any questions about BMXing or our in-store BMX products, you can email Paul at firstname.lastname@example.org, call him on 0116 251 6167 or pop in to see him anytime!
The Ledge was recently featured on Hooked, a group based in Derby dedicated to helping young people with an interest in alternative sports. Take a look here at what Hooked had to say about us.
Hooked's aim is to provide accessible facilities for young people interested in extreme sports which not only keeps the kids healthy, but keeps them out of trouble too.
