Bob and Helen Kelly are a wonderful male/female coaching combination suitable for aspiring junior cyclists right through to elite and masters level riders. Bob has directed teams at an international level throughout North America and Europe. He has coached cyclists for over 15 years and has represented Australia in karate, triathlon and orienteering. His ‘what you see is what you get’ style of coaching is well liked by many athletes who have risen from the junior ranks to winning National titles under his steady guidance.

Helen retired from international competition in February 2010 after racing professionally for 8 years and representing Australia at the World Championship level. She carved out a career as a highly respected ‘domestique’ and helped her team achieve podium results in world cups, as well as the women’s Tour de France and other major international races. Helen’s recent journey from club level rider to the pinnacle of women’s cycling makes her a great resource for our athletes who are striving to follow this same pathway.
