Pedaler in Boulevard Magazine

Switching Gears Co-Owner/Founder Paul Rayman is featured in the current Boulevard Magazine “Secrets and Lives” starting on page 143. Just as the article states, he has lots of stories to tell about his past work in the ski, hospitality, and film industries, and our employees will agree. These days he mostly likes to talk about bicycles and bicycle tourism. A fun factoid is that Paul was born in British Guiana, South America, now Guyana, where James Douglas the founder of Fort Victoria was also born. Thanks Boulevard Magazine!
