Programs to Fit Every Athlete

Selecting a Coach

Looking for a coach?

Effective coaching requires understanding how different individuals respond to training, and knowing how to adjust training based on how the athlete responds.  I provide well thought out, individualized training plans and schedules, and offer timely ongoing feedback, and adjustments, to the training.

Coaching is my full-time vocation, and yet I still limit myself to no more than 10 clients at one time. I provide a service that not only draws on my more than 20 years of coaching experience, but also offers unprecedented availability to my clients.
I’ve worked with professional, and amateur cyclists, ranging from absolute beginners to state, national, and world champions. I’ve developed my coaching abilities, philosophies, and methodologies from racing, formal training, and my experience working with a diverse group of clients with various skills, interests, and athletic abilities.

I work with clients all over the world, including the Bay Area in California, Bend Oregon, and Seattle WA.  I also broadcast cycling training classes via Zoom that you can take from your own home.   If you think you might be interested in having me coach you I welcome you to contact me to set up an interview.

Personal Riding/Training Camps

Personal Mountain Bike Riding/Training Camps

 

Want to work on base training, skills development, developing your V02 max, or just have some fun riding your mountain bike?  Then come join me for guided mountain bike rides in the high desert of Bend Oregon during the summer months, or near Phoenix AZ during winter months.  Trails vary from smooth and flowing to rocky technical sections.  We can choose the trails that are best suited for your needs, and I’ll take your though some daily rides where we can work on fitness and skills development.

I have spent years scouting out the best single track rides in these areas, and can also advise you about places to stay and eat based on your interests/budget.  You’ll be able to have a nice cycling vacation, and not have to worry about how to choose the best routes.  I’ll guide you on the trails best suited for your ability/interests and we can work on skills, and specific training, if you’d like.  Since it will be your personal rides, the pace will be set to suit you and your group.  

Rides can range from 10 miles to 50 miles per day. 
In Bend, there is also the option of shuttling which can provide up to 25 miles of mostly downhill riding. 

Guided mountain bike rides near Phoenix Arizona – January through February.

Book your sessions for January and February 2023 by contacting me for available dates.

Guided mountain bike rides in Bend Oregon – June through September.

I charge $75/hour or 3 hours for $200 for up to 4 riders (shuttle fees not included).  
We can just ride for 3 hours, or longer if you’d like, and/or take some time along the ride to work on specific skills like cornering, lifting the front wheel, riding over objects, braking, weight transfer for traction, corners, and braking or any skill you might be needing help with. Sorry, but aerial acrobatics not included. 

I also offer custom structured training camps for your groups/teams –

Metabolic Profile testing with INSCYD

Physiological Performance Testing

If you want to know about your V02 max (maximum aerobic capacity), VLamax (maximum anaerobic capacity), fat verses carbohydrate metabolism, power training zones, FatMax training intensity, training thresholds, and aerobic verse anaerobic energy system balance, I can take you through an easy to follow, but challenging, power performance test, and then analyze the data to determine these parameters for you.

 

Test can be done on your own (you send me your power files after following my instructions), or in person with me pacing, and guiding you through the actual tests – this can be done via Zoom on your indoor trainer. 

All tests are done on your bike, with your power meter.  This keeps all the data relevant to your training.

Tests with data analysis are $500 in person with me, $350 with me via Zoom, or $250 if you do the power tests on your own and send me the files for analysis.

 

I will compile a test data report that provides the following information.

– Training Thresholds

– Power Based Training Zones

– Aerobic and Anaerobic power balance

– Metabolic Profile of Fat and Carbohydrate burning

– Calculated V02 max

– Training Focus Recommendations based on test data and athlete’s goals.

Please contact me for more details.
