Coach Bio

Cycling has been part of my life since my early teens, starting with club rides and progressing to circuit racing, time trials and cyclo cross. My love of road riding soon emerged and I currently ride 4 times a week, regularly taking part in time trials. I've been lucky enough to ride some Europe’s greatest climbs such as Stelvio, Col du Tourmalet and Alp Duez. I may not be an ex pro or elite racer but I am an avid cyclist and, as a qualified Cycling Coach with 30 years of riding experience.

Coaching is about listening, evaluating, and understanding. Once aware of your needs, I adopt the most effective strategy and motivational approach to coach you successfully. It is my responsibility to explain the training strategy and outline how you will reach your goals on a physiological and psychological level. Your responsibility is to communicate and document your efforts on and off the bike and to share your thoughts and ideas. Hands on coaching is effective and utilising web based programs for designing and evaluating strategies can be beneficial - but it’s not enough. Understanding your unique process and creating an individually tailored, physical and mental plan to achieve your aims requires interaction. We work together to mould the optimum approach.
