How can I help?

 

If your goal is just to get fitter or improve your time for doing a sportive, or if you want to start competing, I can help. You may want to start doing time trials, improve your times, get faster on your triathlon bike leg, or improve your performance in road, cyclocross or MTB racing. Or you may just want to be able to ride faster, do a sportive that is outside your comfort zone, etc. All of these are based around cycling fitness. My strategy will be to work with you to understand your goals and how much time per week you have to work on them. I will then work out a training plan for you to follow and give you feedback as you progress through the plan. The rest is up to you!
