CUSTOMISED CYCLE COACHING FOR
ALL AGES AND ABILITIES
HOW WE OFFER CUSTOMISED CYCLE COACHING
I established Holmes Cycling with the support of my son Matt and together we aim to provide individually customised cycle coaching advice and mentoring to fit your abilities, time constraints and personal goals. With a background of over 50 years of racing experience between us, we use personal knowledge in addition to modern coaching methods to provide a value for money holistic approach to supporting your training aimed at helping you reach your full potential regardless of your current level of fitness or previous training.
Providing a lot more than just a simple weekly training schedule for you to follow, we offer advice on periodised season planning, bike setup, race tactics and much more. Sharing our knowledge, experience and passion for the sport will help motivate you to achieve your own cycling success.
In addition you will learn how to train "smarter" and avoid wasted miles which eat into your valuable time. Instead we incorporate real structure to your training ensuring you are at your best for your target events.
Especially relevant is our policy of not having any complicated pricing or restrictions on when you can talk to us. Rather, we are happy to do whatever we can to support you as much you need. Most of all everyone receives the same high quality coaching service for the same price.
Additionally we can provide general advice and consultations to clubs and teams on a group basis.
Most of all we want you to succeed and achieve your goals no matter how simple or high level they may be. We love our sport and want to help as many people as possible get more out of their riding.
My love of cycling began over 40 years ago when I joined my first cycling club, Wigan Wheelers and I have continued riding and racing ever since. During my racing career I have had over 80 wins, most noteworthy being 9 National Championship titles in my age group. I still regularly race as a member of Bott Cycle Team and for the 2018 season I hold two age related National Championship titles for road and circuit racing. I am a member of the Association of British Cycle Coaches qualified to their Level 3 standard and I am also a British Cycling qualified Level 2 coach.
I started cycling at the age of 8 and it has been a major part of my life since then. My dad coached and mentored me through the youth and junior ranks until I joined British Cycling's GB Olympic Development Programme and was selected to ride for the Junior World Championships in 2011. Consequently I turned professional at 18 with Raleigh GAC and then I joined Madison Genesis in 2014 and I am now in my 5th season with them, riding high profile events such as the Tour de Yorkshire and Tour of Britain. My experience of racing at all levels from youth to professional means I can provide valuable input and advice to all our athletes.
