Here at Ride Harder we are dedicated to making you faster on the bike through bike fitting, testing, training plans and coaching. I believe that a coach benefits every athlete regardless of their ability. A cycling coach is not just for the Pro's!

Bio

My cycling career started in 2005 when I purchased my first road bike and I was immediately hooked. Since then I have completed numerous cycling challenges including Ironman, Lands’ End to John O Groats, Mt Ventoux (all 3 ascents), London to Paris, the BBAR challenge which included a 12 hour Time Trial and more recently Mallorca 312.
.
My passion for cycling then led to wanting to help others to achieve their goals which is what led me to wanting to coach.
.
After leading group rides for a number of years I then became the head cycle coach of the local triathlon club (which has 600+ members) leading the club turbo sessions and skills sessions. Following demand I then expanded to offer 1:1 coaching and am now into my third year of the successful “Team Ride Harder” which is my group package and has over 40 members. I am currently coaching cyclists in road race, time trial, sportives and triathlon.
