“I have been cycling on a road bike for nearly six years but, until now, had never experienced any formal training. I would say I’ve always cycled competently, but conservatively, and have taken part in a few time trials in the past. Bee’s training plans have been aimed at training me for time trialling with the added complication of two planned rides to Paris.The training has been a fantastic experience, giving me a real focus. I’ve really enjoyed the structure of the sessions which have been presented very clearly to me. I have found many of the sessions very challenging – particularly the tempo sessions – but I feel the results have been excellent, my average speeds have soared and my approach to cycling has changed from one of shying away from really pushing myself to absolutely embracing the challenge.
I was able to complete a 72-mile sportive recently at an average speed of 16.4mph – unheard of a few months ago! Added to this, I have lost a stone in weight since January. Bee’s coaching has been excellent, very clear, very supportive and now I’m really looking forward to my first time trial on 22nd May when I am sure the hard work will pay off.”
