Dave has a great ability to create a cycling lesson plan for both indoor and out cycling with structure and make it fun for the children
He started coaching in 2009 with the goal of delivering the best possible coaching to riders of all ages and abilities, and so he could spend his days sharing stories of rides and drinking tea!
