In March of 2007, Ryder Bikes was purchased by Paul and Karen Tobio. Paul worked in a large bicycle shop in Massachusetts for eight years. Paul raced BMX growing up, turned to freestyle riding during the 80s, and has been riding mountain bikes and road bikes ever since. Both Karen and Paul have been racing triathlons for the past four years. Paul brings an excellent knowledge of cycling to the Ryder Bikes team, including a USA Triathlon level 1 coach and certified bicycle fit education.
