My approach to coaching has always been founded on two underlying principles; fun and simplicity. Creating a relaxed, engaging and enjoyable environment allows you to focus on your progress. After all, learning shouldn’t be stressful.

Young cyclists first kindling their love for the sport, older adults returning to cycling after 50 years off their bike, mountain bikers finding better flow on the trails, or outdoor education instructors advancing their teaching practices. I strive to support people of all ages and ambitions to get the most out of their sport, and themselves.

From early days coaching basketball and a multitude of other sports and activities in outdoor education, I now specialise in cycle coaching. Cycling has been a constant both in my own personal life and career, from racing multiple disciplines to guiding MTB in the French Alps and Greek islands, full-time coaching with British Cycling and Scottish Cycling, and working as a private coach with individuals, clubs and other organisations.

As a cyclo-cross and mountain biking specialist I lead on the Scottish National programme of cyclo-cross coaching for youth and junior riders, as well as train future coaches for British Cycling. With a wealth of coach development experience over the past 20 years I’ve delivered a range of bespoke professional development training programmes for different organisations and national governing bodies. Besides holding many internationally recognised qualifications and awards, I tutor many of them too!

Parallel to coaching, I also have an extensive background in event management, including the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic road cycling events, the UK stages of the 2014 Tour de France, and the 2018 European Championships Cross-country Mountain Biking.
