I'm a life-long cyclist and bike racer and enjoy helping people progress in the sport I love. I've been coaching for more than ten years, helping beginners to World Champions with equal excitement and results. I can help you with road, mountain, cyclocross, and track, having competed and coached with success in each discipline.

I favor a good amount of structure in training plans. I also favor interval work, much of it on a stationary trainer which is a consistent training venue. Road training and racing are important and a foundation or most of my training plans, but seriously specific and challenging intervals are what I use to get people to higher fitness. I also favor a good amount of racing as training for achieving the goals of the season, be they peak fitness for a specific event or reaching a specific fitness metric. I believe less in volume (miles/hours) and more in shorter intense workouts. I believe in off-the-bike strength training. I believe diet and body weight must be part of the equation to improvement. I don't sugar coat. I tell clients what I really think about where they are, how they are doing, and what I think they need to do to get better. I offer praise when it's deserved, but also information on how things could have been done better, as improving is generally always possible and a goal. I require reasonable dedication to completing training plans. I dedicate myself to designing a plan that should bring improvements and hold myself accountable to seeing results. Seeing results makes it all worth it. Training is sometimes very hard, but fun is always a vital consideration. Most everyone I know rides mostly for the fun. Thus, I try to put a good amount of fun in training plans. Its also true that achieving results is fun. Let me help you have some fun!
