I am a certified USA Cycling Coach and have over 35 years of experience as a rider, racer, coach and trainer.
I coach Road, Mountain, Cyclocross. With continuing education credits (USAC) in environmental physiology, beginner racer training, mental training, season planning and peaking, cyclocross training, nutrition and hydration, training and racing with power, I have your needs covered.
I strictly limit the number of athletes I work with to ensure they get the best service at all times.
I ensure I am available to the athletes I coach to answer questions and share my knowledge. I am local to you; you can meet me in person and even ride with me. I am not a faceless email address!

If you are looking for a coach to support your on-going cycling needs or to help with longer term objectives then this program is for you. After an initial in depth consultation I will develop a personalized training plan for you to help you meet your long term goals. I will review your workouts and provide feedback. Plans can be updated based on your fitness response to training and to changing life needs. You will have email access to my knowledge base and will receive responses same day where practical. In depth monthly review and feedback consultations via email, phone or in person are also provided (Gold). I offer two levels of one to one training support:

6 Week Goal Focused Training Plans
I understand that individualized coaching isn’t for everyone and a short term plan built around a specific objective may be all that is required. I can provide a tailored 6 week training plan to help you meet your goals for that big event, whether it be the State Championships, your first race or that big Gran Fondo. It has been scientifically proven that following a specific training plan hugely improves an athlete’s ability to meet their goals.
If you and your team mates are looking to develop together under a structured program, I offer group skills and training sessions custom tailored to your needs. I have put together programs for teams in the past have included on-line elements as well as on the bike sessions. Please feel free to contact me to discuss how I can meet your needs.
If you have a particular cycling need you wish to address, I am also available for private consultation. With my 35 years of riding and racing experience I can help you with all aspects of the sport such as bike fit and set up, technique, race craft, goal setting advice, nutrition, fitness assessments/testing and others. Prices are based on a standard hourly rate, please contact me to discuss further.
My aim is to work with the athlete to provide the best service and programs are generally customized to meet the athlete’s specific requirements. My rates are based on anticipated level of coach involvement, but for around the cost of a daily trip to Starbucks, you can experience what a coach can do for you. Please contact me for further information.
