    Are you a member of a cycling club?

    They have links to coaches, and may even have coaches in the club itself.

    May be a good place to start

    I think it helps if you know what you're looking for in a coach. Some people like a very scientific approach, others need a good motivator, some just want a bit of structure in their training. It's certainly worth contacting a few coaches and talking over what you're looking for. You need to be able to get on with him/her and to put your confidence in them if you're going to get the best out of working with a coach.

  • Like Ruth said it's worth chatting/interviewing a few coaches and seeing who you get on with, who has experience in the areas you want to improve, what their success rate is like, and what type of approach they have.

    additionally you'll need to check their costs, and whether you have access to the equipment that the coach may require (e.g. with RST, you'll need at least a HR monitor for training prescription, but will preferably use a power meter instead).

    The other place to look for coaches is the ABCC site,
