ABOUT ME

Having recently announced my retirement from professional cycling, the next chapter for me involves helping you!

Coaching and mentoring both individuals and clubs is something I now have the time to really focus on. With over 15 years experience living my life as a professional cyclist I can honestly say without some key individuals who have helped push and guide me through those years, I would never have got as far as I did. I feel extremely lucky to have had some fantastic people around me through my career and I want to share with you some of the training, knowledge and guidance which had such a huge impact not only on my performance but on my confidence and happiness..

I have experienced cycling though multiple disciplines at almost every level. I started off racing around muddy fields in Notts and Derby Cyclocross races as an U16 with my family. I went on to be part of the talent team with British Cycling and then progressed on to some of the best teams in the world. Competing at the highest level within the sport for road and cyclocross. Having raced at multiple European and World championships as well as the Olympic Games in Rio, I know there is so much more to being a good bike rider than just being given a training program.

I understand the different disciplines, the differences between male and female physiology and the mindset which is needed to improve.

My aim is to inspire, coach and mentor the next generation of cyclists using my past experience, creating happy healthy bike riders.
