Patty Paul of Berrien Springs, Michigan describes herself as a mild-mannered software development manager by trade. But her alter-ego is an adrenaline junkie. At 57 years young, Patty enjoys a love for speed and adventure and shares her passion for motorsports with her husband. Along with riding motorcycles, the pair are avid snowmobilers, and even held their winter wedding trailside in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
After 14 years of riding everything from trail bikes, to touring bikes, Patty decided to try track riding—an experience she says she will never forget. “Five years ago, I attended California Superbike School at Barber. Those first two laps, I was clueless. I was terrified. But I was in love! That day changed my life, and my track addiction began.”
As part of a personal challenge to grow as a rider and improve her fitness, both physically and mentally, Patty applied to be a part of the 2022 Royal Enfield BUILD. TRAIN. RACE. program.
“I’m beyond excited and honored to participate in BTR this season—what a dream come true!” Patty exclaimed. “The team of women is amazing, diverse in talent and backgrounds. Through this journey, I hope I can inspire other potential riders, young and not so young, to pursue this sport.”
