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.
