 Group Coaching 

Group coaching sessions are available in cyclo-cross, mountain biking and road cycling and vary from full day programmes to short evening sessions, including my popular cyclo-cross masterclasses.

These sessions are designed to provide a fun learning environment and the right level of challenge for everyone taking part. Bespoke sessions are also available, tailored to your specific needs.

Sessions currently scheduled are shown below or can be found on the events tab of my Facebook page.

Mountain Bike Coaching Sessions

2024 MTB Progression Sessions are GO!!!

 

My mountain bike progression sessions provide coaching options for riders of different ability level and focus.

 

NOVICE - IMPROVER

These sessions are designed as a progressive programme that aims to support riders who are new to mountain biking, or those who've ridden off road for a while, but who don't possess the skills and/or confidence to progress onto more technical terrain. These sessions can also offer a welcome refresher or 'tune up' if you haven't ridden in a while and feel that your skills might be a bit rusty.

Session dates and content are:

  • Saturday 9th March - Trail Riding Fundamentals

  • Saturday 30th March – Correct Cornering Technique

  • Saturday 20th April - Technical Trail Riding

The sessions will take place at Lochore Meadows, Fife, and will run 1pm – 4:30pm.

INTERMEDIATE - ADVANCED

Intermediate riders are anyone who, as a minimum will find blue grade trails fun, fast and easy. They will relish the challenge of red grade trails and may venture onto the occasional black trail. All of these sessions are suitable for more advanced riders too, and are a great way to get rid of bad riding habits, or to fine tune your technique.

Session dates, content and venues are:

  • Sunday 10th March - Drops @ Deuchny Woods

  • Sunday 31st March - Advanced Cornering @ Ballo Woods

  • Sunday 21st April – Finding Flow on Advanced Terrain @ Hallyburton

These sessions will run 10am – 1:30pm.

XC RACE CRAFT

Aimed primarily at those planning to race SXC, the technical coaching and rider support works for everyone whether you are a racer or recreational rider. I've got 2 sessions planned initially, with scope for more based on interest.

  • Sunday 7th April - Lochore Meadows.

  • Sunday 18th August - Comrie Croft.

 

The coaching fee for all MTB progression sessions is £55/rider/session, or riders can sign up to two or more sessions for a reduced fee of £50/session. All sessions are limited to a maximum of 6 riders to ensure a high level of individual coaching support.

 

For more information and to reserve a space on any of the sessions please drop me a line.

Cyclo-cross Masterclasses

Available for individual riders to sign up to or arranged as tailor made sessions specifically for clubs, groups or a bunch of ‘cross-mad friends. These masterclasses typically last 4 hours and are designed to support riders with racing, focusing on the technical, tactical, physical and psychological challenges that riders face in competition. Different levels of masterclass are available, including:
 

  • ‘Cross fundamentals - for those new to the discipline and for those with a little bit of experience but who wish to build on basic technique
     

  • ‘Cross progression - for riders who’ve got the cross bug after a season or two of racing and who are keen to push themselves further
     

  • ‘Cross performance - for the more experienced racer who is looking for support to enhance their racing, refine skills, and develop a successful race strategy

Prices for tailor made masterclasses start at £300 for a 4 hour session for up to 10 riders.

Group Road Cycling Workshops

Bunch, chaingang, peloton; whatever the collective noun you use to describe a group of cyclists, the bottom line is riding with friends or club mates can be a very pleasurable experience, not to mention safer and more efficient. However it can also be a bit stressful if you are not confident riding in a group, or indeed if others in the group lack basic group riding etiquette and skills.
 

My group road cycling workshops are designed to address those problems, supporting everyone to understand how the group should ride together, the ways in which we move as a group, communicate with one another and other road users, and how we can maximise the safety, efficiency and social enjoyment of riding with friends. Sessions are designed for between 4 and 8 riders and can be tailored to meet your group’s exact needs.

 

To arrange a session for your club get in touch.
 

Prices for group coaching sessions start at £12.50/rider and vary depending on the session type, duration and location.

To discuss your specific requirements and arrange a tailor made group session please get in touch.
