Welcome Paddy Doran

Welcome Paddy Doran, Ireland’s top cycling coach

I am very excited and delighted to announce that I will be working with Ireland’s leading coach, Paddy Doran, from Peak Endurance Coaching. We will offer cycling coaching services to sportive riders in the UK and Ireland. This is an incredible opportunity for sportive riders in the UK to gain access to such a highly qualified and coaching expert.

Peak Endurance Coaching

For those of you that don’t know, Paddy has the most outstanding coaching record. With his wealth of cycling knowledge and attention to detail, I know the riders we work with, will get a professional, tailored, and bespoke service to help achieve their cycling goals in 2016 and beyond.

When I first met Paddy Doran, he was coaching with my hometown club of Kildare in Ireland. In recent years, he was a tutor, when I studied for my coaching badge with Cycling Ireland. From that meeting, we have built a great friendship rooted in our passion for cycling and improving performance. I was delighted to have Paddy as my coach in recent years. He helped me achieve a top 15 overall in a 2-day stage race in Ireland which my was best ever result. Paddy also improved my endurance that helped for my longest ever charity sportive at 180kms.
