Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Coaches?

Anyone know where, or how, to find a coach for cycling? I want to get better and this seems like a logical next step.

Post up in the road racing forum, you will get quite a few suggestions. My coach was Jacob Fetty and he really helped me. His website is www.fsconceptscoaching.com. He is a great guy and understands how life can sometimes get in the way so he coaches accordingly.

If you want an actual person, the best way to find a coach is to ask around your local cycling community.

+1, check with the local race-oriented cycling club.

There are "online" coaches but I suspect you may do better with someone in person.
