Cycling Coaching

One of Cycling’s great appeals is that, to a large degree, your body

weight is absorbed by the bike. As a cardio vascular and leg strength

exercise session, cycling has very few rivals. In addition, much of your

training is outdoors and often in beautiful environments, so what more

could you ask?


So, if you’re thinking of doing your 1st fun/recreational ride, or working

towards a major challenge like 3 Peaks, Brian can help you achieve

your goals.

always encouraging people to extend themselves and be

the best that they can be. Combining his passion for
