Dronfield , United Kingdom
I am a British Cycling Level 3 coach and am a passionate and experienced coach, committed to helping my clients achieve their cycling goals. My coaching is tailored to fit each individual's needs, from beginner to seasoned athlete. I am dedicated to helping you improve your performance and reach your full potential. I have a wealth of experience with younger riders and have helped many younger riders achieve their goals.
I have been a keen cyclist for 20 years and a go ride club coach for the past 7 years. I have coached youngsters and adults and helped them develop from a leisure rider to a competitive one. I have experienced the youth pathway from Youth E upwards with my own children and know what it takes to perform well at National and regional level.
My own cycling has seen me riding local cyclo-cross and circuit races and has taken me on many challenges. Like many cyclists the need to go further has pushed me to achieve things I never thought I could physically do. Once I had completed my first century ride I needed to go further and on harder terrain. Living on the edge of the Peak District means I have a masochistic love of climbing hills and pushing myself to my limits. I have completed many challenges including coast to coast in a day - 150 miles and last year i completed the NC500 in 5 days. I have climbed many Alpine cols and have summited Mont Ventoux numerous times. I love multi day trips and know what it takes to train for and carry out these efforts. My happy place is on a bicycle and a close second is seeing my clients achieve their goals.
