I'm thinking of asking for a cycling coach for Christmas. Where should I start to find a good one?
After 3 years of recreational riding, last year I raced collegiate and USCF for the first season and really enjoyed it. 75% of my "training" was group rides, trying to keep up with guys faster than me. Over the summer I moved from TX to northern KY and just rode recreational in the hills of the Ohio valley and loved it, it was beautiful. Now I'm in Ann Arbor, MI until July. I don't know anyone or any groups, and I only have my road bike, so cross and mtb are out as training methods during the winter. I am interested in getting a coach in the coming months to see what I can do racing next season.
I considered a powertap and self training, but I think maybe my money would be better spent on a coach.
