“As a devoted father of two children who are at an age where I basically run a taxi service from home combined with a full time job my training time is limited.  My times were becoming stagnant so I knew something needed to change if I was to go faster whilst not being able to increase the time I spend training. I decided I needed a coach and contacted Westside Coaching to discuss my needs, limitations and aims.

“Glyn immediately set to work setting me up a structured plan for a few weeks whilst he assessed my power data from training and races.

“During the 2016 I set new personal bests at 10, 25 and 50 miles and did a course PB on every course I rode during the season.   One of my highlights has to be racing a 2up with Glyn and it was a pleasure to ride with not only my new coach but an exceptionally strong rider

“My new times for 2016 were at levels I never thought I would ever be able to compete at and surpassed any aims that I had for the season.”

2015 2016
10 Miles – 20.59 20.44
25 Miles – 55.04 52.39
50 Miles – 1.55.29, 1.50.00


“In addition to the training Glyn has also taught me the art of pacing and has also been a great help with rest and relaxation. He is very personable and knows when to push you hard and when to lighten up if outside influences are impacting your schedule.

“Just heading into 2017 with a structured winter I already feel stronger and fitter than ever so I hold great hopes for the coming season.

“I couldn’t recommend Glyn highly enough as his understanding of the sport, technical data and importantly the way he interacts with others is amazing and he has had a big influence on me.”
