Hi,

Basically I have been riding seriously again for a year and haven't really improved too much in the last 6 months. I get the impression that my training knowledge has exhausted itself and I don't want to waste time going into the winter and loose out early next season. So I have decided to get myself a coach to make the most of my time/effort!

My question is, does anybody know a good coach based in central Scotland? Either that or one based online that can do personalized training plans with a good amount of feedback throughout the process. Also if anyone knows rough prices that would help so I can start budgeting for it!

Thanks,

Campbell.

What's Obree doing these days? Give him a ring.
Seriously, aren't there any cycling coached on-line in Scotland?

I actually ride with Obree from time to time(same club as me) and his time is taken up with his human powered vehicle land speed record at the moment! I was hoping someone would have one that is recommended! I'm aware that the effectiveness will vary a lot depending on the coach!

That is really cool. How is he doing? Since you are in a cycling club no one has any references?

He is doing well, still a bit mad but really good to talk with! The club doesn't really have many guys riding seriously, certainly nobody with a coach. There are only 50 or so members so it's a pretty small group!
