Ask around people you know. Google is the last place I would look for a coach.

My team and the cycling club associated with it are where I found my coach. Start asking around.

Asking around is your best bet...

Ask the guys who are kicking your ass on a regular basis who they are working with.

A local guy here , I call him "the Shepherd", has been turning out thorns in my side for quite a while. Fortunately they don't stay in my category very long.

great question, no one size fit all answer. i've tried a couple coaches...with different techniques and realized what is good for one is not necessarily good for me. assess your training needs and find a coach/coaching technique which meets those needs
