The joy of two wheels when you know what you are doing can be immense and can plant the seed of a passion that will last your child for life! Bikes offer speed, excitement, challenge, reward, freedom and the valuable lessons in getting back up again after a fall. However, without the necessary skills it can be a far from enjoyable experience - for parent and child alike. Let me take that pain away from you!
I run Covid-19 secure 45-minute 1-to-1 sessions to help your child hone their bike skills. The cost is £18 for one person.
During lockdown-2 I am running Covid-19 secure 30-minute 1-to-1 sessions for Kemsing Primary School pupils (£10). Suggested age is 7 years and above.
Areas covered include: the ready position, braking, mounting and dismounting the bike, gears, cornering, balance and coordination, climbing and descending.
I know various Kemsing-based public locations we can use. A parent/guardian should also be present for 1-to-1 sessions.
The first step is to get in touch via my Contact page. Then we can agree requirements and a suitable time. You can then book the session here. For each participant you will also need to complete a consent form. No form, no fun!
In order to keep riders, coaches and others safe, the sessions will run in a Covid-19 Secure manner, following guidance from the British Triathlon Federation.
We are living in strange times but I’m confident that all of the following won’t stop the joy of two wheels and planting the seed of a passion that will last your children for life! Bikes offer speed, excitement, challenge, reward, freedom and the valuable lessons in getting back up again after a fall.
To keep everyone as safe as possible, please read and ensure the participant understands the following:
I am passionate about working with athletes of all standards to help them achieve their swim-bike-run goals. Regardless of where you live, I am able to provide you with the coaching and support you need to help achieve your goals. I use evidence-based training science to provide bespoke individualised training programmes.
My specialisms are off-road triathlon and duathlon and sprint and Olympic distance triathlons. I have won multiple World, European and National age group titles across triathlon and duathlon (both road and off-road).
I also have a strong sport science background (BSc in sport science degree, a PhD in sport psychology and a decade working as a sport scientist with England Netball).
I coach a maximum of 4 athletes.
The first step is to get in touch via my Contact page.
Then, I have a comprehensive analysis for you to complete, followed by a meeting (ideally face-to-face if location enables). My goal is to learn what motivates you, your strengths and weaknesses and what is going on in the non-triathlon parts of your life. I gather a lot of information before we set up a plan. I don’t believe in “off the shelf plans.”
Thereafter, there is constant two-way monitoring, feedback and regular communication (weekly catch up, email, messaging), giving you the opportunity to provide on-going input to help deliver the programme that is specific to your enjoyment and development.
Come race day we are prepared…we’ve controlled the controllables.
Thanks Claire, X enjoyed her birthday lesson!
You were brilliant with X and he progressed so much in one lesson. Really looking forward to continuing next week.
Claire has been brilliant with X. I’d highly recommend her lovely lessons.
My two loved developing their skills further. I'd definitely recommend Claire for competent cyclists looking to improve!
Claire you have done an amazing job with so many of the children I know.
Fantastic coaching! Thanks so much. You have a calm and laid-back approach making the children feel comfortable and wanting to do more. Always pushing themselves rather than us trying to get them to do more. X has benefitted so much.
X loved his time with you and gained lots of confidence.
