Lee also offers coaching for those who just want a structured approach to getting fit, losing weight and riding sportive’s.
Lee is our resident cycling guru and “agony Uncle” (he’ll love me saying that!). He’ll be giving insight in to bike racing at all levels, what its like to have a personal coach, answering your training, bike set up and tactics questions, plus reporting from racing events around the country. Contact Lee with any of your questions he’s here to dispel the myth’s around good training and cycling in general.
Away from cycling Lee likes trashy American TV such as Gossip Girl, How I met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory and The mentalist. He is also a fan of X Factor ( he is well known amongst friends for his weekly review on the show on facebook), eating cheesecake, snowboarding and travelling and experiencing new cultures.
