Who are we?

Andrew Bos and Paula Ewing are your hosts at Tread. 

Born and raised in Castlemaine, Paula has a history in cycling event management including the Olympics, Commonwealth Games, Track Cycling World Championships, the Jayco Herald Sun Tour and the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race. Paula currently hits the dirt (sometimes literally) on a Specialized Rumour, while she tackles Mt Alexander on her Cannondale Synapse.

Architect by trade, Andrew’s connection with Castlemaine began in 2008 when he followed his heart to the country only to discover a family connection to the area dating back to the 1960’s. Andrew volunteers on the Rocky Riders MTB Club committee and is a member of the Goldfields Track Committee. Andrew rides a Cannondale Habit off road, and leaves Paula for dust when ascending Mt Alexander on his worshipped Eddie Merckx.

Paula and Andrew love riding and enjoy hearing about people’s outdoor adventures. Come in and see them …  you’ll probably stay a while.
