A cycle coaching centre & club

Coaching is very much at the heart of everything we do. From indoor classes and training camps to fitness tests and workout plans, improvement is what drives Paul Mill and his team. Whilst some of our clients are regular racers, others have been entering events for the first time or pursuing fitness goals. We are all athletes with elitecycling, and proudly so.

Paul Mill

Director & Cycling Coach

Having started my sports career as an international triathlete, I turned to cycling after the Barcelona Olympics and continued at national professional level.  I’ve won over 100 races in different countries across cycling disciplines and have maintained close contacts with experts in the field to draw on the latest training methods in sports science, physiology and psychology. I gave up my day job as a postman in 2012 to set up elitecycling and coach full time.

Since then, I’ve worked with cyclists of all abilities, aptitudes and backgrounds who all have their own targets and goals – from winning races to riding safely, and from 75 to 6 years old.  I am a qualified Level 3 Cycle Coach (Road and Time Trial) / Certified Training Peaks Coach / Diploma in Sports Psychology.

I totally love my job!

Audrey Livingston

Triathlon Coach

I began my career in fitness as a Personal Trainer in 2006 and has since competed in over 80 events ranging from super sprint to middle distance triathlons, aquathlons, 5k up to half marathons and a number of sportives in England Scotland and Wales.  I started Triathlon Coaching in 2008 and currently coach at two local triathlon clubs as well as running local junior after school triathlon club.  I work with athletes of all abilities from novice to age grouper.

I have recently been awarded the London Region Children’s Coach of the Year 2017, an award I also received in 2015.  I am a Triathlon Race Official and volunteer on the London Region Triathlon Committee as the Coaching Coordinator.

I feel that my experiences and background in health/fitness/strength and conditioning helps me to understand the needs of the athlete at all levels.  I am a qualified Level 3 Triathlon Coach / UK Athletics Run Coach / British Cycling Coach / Level 4 Personal Trainer.

Glen Baxter

Cycling Coach

I enjoy riding with the club as well as coaching sessions at Herne Hill Velodrome, Turbo Beat classes and training camps. Feedback suggests that I’m particularly good with new riders – either individuals or groups – who want to know how to ride safely and efficiently on the road or track.

I’ve helped to fit out the Performance Centre where I do 1-1 coaching, bike analysis sessions and advise on bike builds. I am a qualified Level 2 Cycle Coach (Track) / Certified Training Peaks Coach / Derny Driver.

Lesley Pinder

Cycling Coach

I am passionate about getting women into cycling, especially in our local area. I liaise with the London Women’s Racing League and charity groups to provide support and bespoke training. I’ve coached youth groups at Herne Hill Velodrome, trained group leaders for Penge CC and coached Turbo Beat classes.

I love riding with my club mates – and getting us to the Tour of the Borders! I am a qualified Level 2 Cycle Coach / hold a Cat 2 racing licence.

Jen George

Strength & Conditioning Trainer

I have worked in fitness for a long time, both as a head of fitness programmes and as a freelance trainer. With a degree in Physiology and Sports Science I work as a freelance personal trainer around my training and racing commitments. I began focusing on cycling in 2012 and started racing in 2014. In 2016 I rode my first year as a UCI professional placing 5th at the National Road Race Championships and 7th at the UCI Tour of Yorkshire.

I’m focusing on selection for the Scottish team for the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Sarah Gray

Osteopath

I qualified with a Masters in Osteopathy in 2016. Prior to this, I worked as a sports therapist for nearly 10 years, which enabled me to work with athletes at all levels. I’ve also taught semi-private and private Pilates and Yoga classes for 8 years, and the principles and exercises from these disciplines form an integral part of my treatment and management plan.

The first appointment includes a full medical history and assessment. Based on this information, I will discuss and formulate a treatment plan you are happy with, to give you the best possible outcome.

Anna Jackson

Physiological Testing

I am a sports scientist, with over 10 years’ experience in elite level sport, specialising in exercise physiology. I’ve worked for the British Olympic Association, the FA, UK Sport and Nuffield Health as well as research projects for companies such as Polar. My PhD is researching diagnosis and treatment of exercise induced asthma.

I’m also a keen triathlete, competing at all distances – from sprint to Ironman.

Gareth Nicholas

Nutritionist

I run one-to-one sessions and group seminars for elitecycling club and clients to advise on how nutrition can help performance. You will have a much better understanding of cycling and triathlon nutrition and how to tailor a nutrition strategy to improve your performance.

A Happy Client

“It was great to have someone patient on my side, someone who wanted to help me make progress and improve. I have never felt foolish for asking very basic questions. I haven’t been pushed to do anything I’ve not been capable of or not wanted to do. My training plans are built round a busy home/work life, which changes constantly – all I have to do is follow what has been put in the diary for the next day.”

elitecycling Club

We’re one of the smaller cycling clubs in SE London although our kit makes us stand out!

We meet at our Performance Centre for club rides into the lanes of Kent and Surrey every weekend.  Generally our Saturday ride is at a tempo pace and on Sundays it’s more of a base ride, but it’s flexible depending on who turns up to ride.  elitecycling coaches are often on our rides for useful tips as well as on-hand mechanical advice.

We organise ourselves into small groups of riders according to pace, current fitness, type of route so that we stay together. With coaches on ride, it’s easy to plan in extra efforts for those who need them. And we all end up at the Crystal Palace Station café. Socially, we love a beer at Canopy in Herne Hill, indoor roller racing with Rollapaluza, Christmas turbo beat parties, spectating/helping at the velodrome, sportive weekenders.
