It's Up To You !!!.
I am a cyclist with many seasons experience
of riding open and club time trials.
I am a qualified coach and a member of the Association of British Cycling Coaches.
I started racing at age 40. I did personal bests at one distance or another for the next 14 years. At the age of 54 I did personal bests at 25 miles ( a short 54 minutes), 50 ( 1 hour 52 minutes) and 100 miles (4 hours 3 minutes and 20 seconds)
didn't train for a 100 (I did one training ride of 80 miles two
weeks before the event).The principles and training programmes
set out on this site are based on my own experiences and the difficulties
I had, when I started, in finding the right programme for me.
I started cycling at the age of 37. This was just about the
time I stopped smoking (20 cigarettes a day and 4 ounces
of pipe tobacco a week). I had previously played soccer and
squash, but I donít
believe I was ever really fit. I rode my first time trial
(a 10 mile club event) at the age of 40 recording a time
of 26 minutes 45 seconds.
an accident terminated my racing. The principles and training
programmes in this site are based on the methods I eventually
used. Any comments, questions
or requests are welcome. We will endeavour to answer
them within three working days.
