Paul Witt

You could say my connection to bicycles started about 90 years ago when my father opened up a small shop in Cleveland, Ohio, where he did locksmithing work and sold Schwinn bicycles. When I was 5 years old, we moved to Gettysburg and shortly after that my parents gave me my first bicycle. Of course it was a Schwinn.

Growing up, Colt Park in Gettysburg was a great place to ride around town and over the battlefield. On many days I rode to school at Keefauver Elementary. Back then we weren’t into bike tricks. Speed was the thing, whomever had the fastest bike was the best (which was really who had the strongest leg muscles).

Paul Witt is a hotel owner/operator who lives in Gettysburg,and is a great supporter of Healthy Adams Bicycle/Pedestrian Inc.
