For several years I have had the desire to complete a multi day long distance ride. I have always felt that my interests were more towards endurance riding than racing. After some health setbacks in the last couple of years, the stars finally aligned and I picked a ride. This ride was no small goal for me, it included about 400 miles and almost 30,000 feet of climbing at altitude over 6 days.
I talked with Coach Shayne about helping me prepare for this event. He had some great ideas and so we worked together to get prepared for the big week. My goal was to not just finish, but finish strong.
Coach Shayne’s workout plans, encouragement, and an appropriate amount of pushing was instrumental in my completion of the ride. He tailored the workouts to meet my schedule and he was always available to provide advice and the encouragement that is needed when things seem to not be going well. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone, especially, someone that is just looking to get started or has a specific event in mind. I was very impressed with his knowledge and ability to help me meet my goals.
I came to Shayne and GCC with lots of enthusiasm and willingness to work, but without knowing how to take my riding to the next level. I also had a bucket list goal: California’s “Death Ride”. Shayne did a great job of meeting me where I was, and crafting a training plan around my abilities, constraints, and preferences. Several (hard!) months later, I crushed the Death Ride and went on to several other challenging rides later in the season. After that, I even took up racing, something I’d never thought I’d do, and had a blast competing in our local cyclocross series. Throughout, Shayne provided great support and knowledge—with lots of humor to keep everything in perspective.
After a few years of riding, having a lot of fun and with fair progress on my own, I came to a point where I continued to struggle to make it to the next level. I have 3 small boys and I travel roughly 40% of the time, so finding the time to do enough training has been a challenge.
I met Shayne a few years ago at a PMC event and had found later he had become a cycling coach. Not so early this season a shared email led me back to Shayne, so I reached out to him for some help, letting him know of my challenging schedule. He was able to put together a plan for my limited time and travel schedule that really challenged me physically and brought me into racing season in great shape. I feel so much stronger than I did a year ago. Looking forward to the rest of this season.
Thank you Shayne.
I started training on my own to a point that was not improving my performance until I started to train with GC Coaching. It is difficult to believe how a specific training makes a lot of difference. It has been accompanied by all the steps in these months of racing season and I have been getting better and better. I will definitely be with them in 2018 next season.
