What should I expect from a coach (how much should I expect to pay, what do you get for the money, etc.) Riders that have used/are using a coach right now, did/do you notice a big difference in your overall cycling abilities?
I have been riding for about 3 years now. I have a Trek 1500. I am 28 years old and I think I would like to get into the racing scene before too long (well, I know I would, I just don't really know where to start, how to train for it, how to know when I am "ready" to race, what kind of pace is to be expected in a Cat 5 race.. etc..) I ride a lot on my own and I ride with the local bike club about 2 times a week. I ride about 70-100 miles a week right now, but that will increase as the days get warmer and longer.
Any comments/advice will be appreciated.
