About me

I hold the British Cycling highest qualification, Level 3 Coach and have more than 10 years’ experience delivering coaching sessions and prescribing one to one training plans.  I am a passionate and enthusiastic coach who enjoys passing on knowledge to help riders achieve their goal, whether that be completing an event, losing weight, improving confidence or winning a race.  I enjoy the process of coaching, from the initial consultation, researching and writing the plan, meeting regularly to reflect on progress and accompanying riders along their journey.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My story 

In the past, I spent years reading books and magazines with contradictory training advice that just led to confusion.  I spent a lot of money entering events, throwing even more cash at shiny kit while hoping I would get enough training in to justify the cost.  I found it hard to balance the demands of training, working full time, spending time with my young family and keeping everyone happy.  With time and experience, I deveIoped strategies to plan my training more effectively.  My performance improved and I have enjoyed competing in a variety of cycling disciplines including mountain bike events, road races, sportives and time trials. I have become passionate about helping others to achieve success and reach their potential.

My experience

I developed my teaching and coaching techniques over a 23 year career as an instructor in the Armed Forces.  I’ve always enjoyed bringing out the best in others, watching them thrive and guiding them to success.  In the last 10 years I’ve been coaching cyclists, both one to one and in groups.  As a Cycling Scotland tutor, I mentor and train cycling instructors and coach regularly for my local cycling club.
