Kudos From Our Riders

Molly Renner

Adam was my coach when I transitioned from racing locally in the SW US to racing on the Pro 1-2 circuit. That was over 20 years ago while he was also racing full time. I still have those hand written workouts, but it was his patience, support and ability to teach me how and when to push myself that made the difference. Adam helped me to discover the confidence needed to race with the best of them. He was there for me again a few years later when I transitioned to mountain bike racing. I know his coaching knowledge has only continued to expand, but I can assure you he’s been a great coach from the very beginning! Molly Renner, Tucson AZ

I learned more at Adam’s weekend clinic than I had in the last four years with various cycling groups and coaches. The skills I acquired in the space of two days have made me much more confident and comfortable on my bike and on the road. Adam’s ability to communicate and explain are equaled by his patience (willingness to answer my many questions), sense of humour, and his obvious cycling passion and experience. The small group size of Adam’s clinics means each participant gets the assistance they need – which was awesome! Thank you so much, Adam!

Trained with Adam Walker back in 2014. I learned so much and became a much better and stronger cyclist. I would recommend his training to anybody that wants to get better.
