Learning and having fun

Recently started attending these sessions, a first for me. They are great fun, inclusive and Charlie shares lots of little tidbits which are really useful. The sessions help me to improve my skills and are very easy going. Plus it is always fun watching Charlie demonstrating re-mounting the bike... 😁

Quality coaching for all ability levels

I recently attended one of Charlie’s coached sessions at Crystal Palace Park. I am a BC Level 2 Coach but I still learnt a lot from Charlie. His session covered a lot of ground, but it never felt overwhelming and there was always ample opportunity to practice and perfect each technique he taught. There was a broad spectrum of ability within the group but each of us came away happy and a better bike handler.

New skills galore

Really learned much in the 90 minutes or so that we were out in Crystal Palace Park. Lots of time for practice too.

Great fun, even if you're a newbie

I attended for a first time with some brief experience of off-road riding and lots of experience of road riding. Pretty much a newbie then.
And it was great fun!
It's well organised and welcoming. Charlie is a really good coach, even if you have no idea what you're doing. He is patient and quick on the detail, with good advice on what to do to improve.
In a 4-hour session we covered pretty much every cyclocross skill you can think of, thanks to the great options in Crystal Palace (the only thing missing was sand).
Plus a nice cafe stop half-way through.
Lots of variety of experience and ages in the group. I would recommend to anyone.

Great coaching... and great fun!

Charlie's CX training sessions are excellent. The sessions are well-organised and the coaching advice is specific to each rider and very helpful. I came away with an improved set of skills and plenty of good ideas on what to practice. Highly recommended.
