An admitted gear and data geek, Peter is well-versed in all aspects of training with power meters or heart rate monitors, but views this technology is merely a means to an end – helping cyclists train efficiently, achieve their goals, and have the most fun they can on the bike. As a coach, he has been proud to help cyclists from junior to 55+ reach their goals, whether they were a young Cat 4 dreaming of upgrading to Cat 1 or a busy professional preparing for Leadville.
Despite doing a relatively poor job of picking his parents with regards to inherent athletic ability, Peter Nicholson has managed to thrive & enjoy the competitive world of Northern California Masters and Elite bike racing. He credits this not to any particularly long history in the sport nor storied prior athletic achievements, but to a genuine passion for cycling. This passion has been enabled by efficient and effective training with the aid of power meters, and most importantly, personalized holistic coaching.
Peter is an active Category 2 racer, a USA Cycling Certified Coach, and also works in the outdoor industry doing public relations. He lives in Marin, where he faces the difficult daily choice of whether to ride Mt. Tam on the road or in the dirt.
