We are great at what we do

“The women’s cycling clinic has literally transformed the way I ride; the tiniest tweaks have yielded incredible results. I am stoked!  Adam is an awesome coach full of great tips and tricks. I highly recommend this clinic to anyone wanting to take their riding up a notch and learn a few things from a pro.”

Sara Wegwitz ~May 2016, Women’s Road Clinic
When it comes to most facets in life, I am a pretty confident gal….except when it comes to cycling. To be blunt, I’m a hack. For some reason, asking for help seemed intimidating. Seriously silly I know, however true.
Adam has a no nonsense,  practical approach to teaching the sport he loves.  He creates a fun and safe environment for learning and of course, teaches mad skills! Never have I felt so connected to by bike, the road and been given the opportunity to feel the full complement of my capabilities.
I’m very excited to see what I can achieve this season.

“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!”
