Individual training program
You will receive a personalised monthly training program written to suit your ability, goals and commitments.  You are able to communicate with the coaches by phone, skype, email, or in person (as required/7 days per week).

Online diary/power & heartrate analysis
In addition to an individualised program, we  also offer an online diary / power analysis package.

  • It is real time coaching – seeing what sessions you are doing each day, obtaining feedback on how sessions felt and manipulating your training to adjust for factors which cannot be predicted when your program is planned and written ahead of time.  This is not offered without cyclists being on an individual training program.
  • The analysis involves reviewing and monitoring your sessions (cadence, power, heartrate, duration), review of TSS and IF, constant consideration to your accumulated fatigue levels.
  • You will need to set up an online Training Peaks subscription.  Click here to read more about the benefits of training with power.

One on one private lessons
These lessons need to be set up in advance by emailing Bob or Helen Kelly.

  • For all one on one sessions we request that athletes get a bike fit first with KCC.
  • Often cornering, descending, balance and sprint difficulties are caused by an incorrectly fitted bike.  (problems with handle bars – can’t reach brakes, bars too narrow/wide/deep/shallow, saddle not fitting properly (soreness/too narrow/side/high/short), saddle setback incorrect so weight not distributed evenly over bike, bike size incorrect, headstem length and angle).
  • Private lessons can be one hour in duration or up to 4 hours.
  • For small group skills sessions please email us to discuss pricing options.
