Road bike coaching


For most of us, the last bit of teaching we had on a bike was when our Mum or Dad gave the saddle a final push and shouted: “Keep pedalling!” But these days we have access to bikes and equipment that was once the preserve of professionals, and in order to get the best out of what’s on offer it can help to have a little more input than “Keep pedalling!”

Whether you’re just starting out and need to know the basics, or you’ve been riding a while and have plateaued and want to get that edge on your mates, we have individual and group lessons to suit you.
