At the start of this year, we only had a single Level 1 British Cycling accredited coach in Tams. But the club have invested in our members putting club subs towards training up more coaches. Lisa and Sue have both qualified as Level 1 Coaches with a view to supporting all our members in Fundamental Skills. Their accreditation was made possible with help from the Ignite Bursary, a fund made available to women in the South West by British Cycling. Nationwide in many sports, there is a massive distortion in the ratio of male and female coaches. We have also been joined by Rebecca at Level 1 and Rachel at Level 2. Committee member, Merwyn, is a personal trainer by trade AND a triathlon coach, so not only do we have bike specific offerings, we also have access to a multi-discipline coach. You can meet our coaches on inductions, club rides and dedicated skills sessions throughout the year.
