Cycling is a wonderful zero-impact activityCycling is a wonderful zero-impact activity that will not cause strains and injuries if you have a correctly-fitting bike and you build up your fitness and stamina gradually. It can be enjoyed by everyone, old or young, active or inactive, competitive and uncompetitive. The health benefits of regular cycling are too numerous to mention, but this sport needn’t be like daily penance at the gym. Ride for health and fitness and explore the countryside. Ride with friends for a good social time or commute to work and save on petrol costs.

For a novice a cycling coach can be like the more familiar gym personal trainer. An individualised programme is needed to build up strength and stamina gradually, along with the correct stretching, rest, nutrition and lifestyle choices. Motivation to stick with your schedule comes more easily with a coach to help and guide you at every step of your development as a cyclist. A sympathetic and knowledgeable ear is available to answer questions and assist with difficulties, however trivial or minor. In addition you get into the habit of recording your rides so that with careful monitoring you will clearly see your progress and can feel confident that your effort is worthwhile.
