Paul Chetwynd is a mountain bike and road bike guide in Japan. He started his career as a professional mountain biker in the ’80. He raced all over North America, and then he moved to Japan to race for Rocky Mountain.
He was born in the UK. His family then moved to Canada. When he was in high school, his family moved from Toronto to Vancouver. At that time, mountain biking was very new, and the north shore was becoming the stage of the first professional riders. It was then that he discovered the sport and felt in love with it. He quit his “secure” job that was paying him a good salary for a dream: becoming a professional mountain biker. Back then, professional mountain biking wasn’t a real thing.
Around 1999 and 2000, he used his name to open his shop, Yatsugatake cycling. He started by teaching Japanese to get better riders. He now guides people from all over the world, from professional mountain bikers to people like me. That’s when I met him.
