These were my goals and they had eluded me for years because, I now see, I didn’t really have a plan for achieving them. I began working with Coach Shayne Gaffney in January of 2015 through his Pure Power (P2) classes looking to finally crack them. I came away from the P2 class seeing a remarkable increase in both my power and confidence. Recognizing the clear benefits structured training had for me, I asked Coach Shayne to coach me through the rest of the 2015 season and I began to consider racing. Having never raced before I was incredibly nervous. But working with Coach Shayne only continued to improve those two facets and as I approached the first race of the season at Mt. Blue, I knew I was ready. Through the season as my confidence and ability grew, each race became more fun than the last.
Thanks to Coach Shayne being so generous with his time and knowledge, I achieved my original goals, grew to set new ones and achieved those as well. There is only one way to say this and that is that 2015 was the most fun I’ve ever had on a bike.
For several years I have had the desire to complete a multi day long distance ride. I have always felt that my interests were more towards endurance riding than racing. After some health setbacks in the last couple of years, the stars finally aligned and I picked a ride. This ride was no small goal for me, it included about 400 miles and almost 30,000 feet of climbing at altitude over 6 days.
I talked with Coach Shayne about helping me prepare for this event. He had some great ideas and so we worked together to get prepared for the big week. My goal was to not just finish, but finish strong.
Coach Shayne’s workout plans, encouragement, and an appropriate amount of pushing was instrumental in my completion of the ride. He tailored the workouts to meet my schedule and he was always available to provide advice and the encouragement that is needed when things seem to not be going well. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone, especially, someone that is just looking to get started or has a specific event in mind. I was very impressed with his knowledge and ability to help me meet my goals.
This year I decided to do something I had never done before, to ride the B2VT ride. I had never ridden 134 miles with 8000 feet of climbing before. I was not sure I had any business even considering this challenge being an average rider at best. I signed up with coach Gaffney who developed a structured training plan for me. I am happy to report that Shayne’s workouts were just what I needed. My goal was to finish the ride and I was pleasantly surprised to find that I felt great and my time was better than I expected it to be. I highly recommend Shayne Gaffney who is both accessible and supportive . At 61 years old I generally feel better riding and climbing is much easier. I plan to sign up for more training soon. I hope this review helps anyone interested in accomplishing their goals however great or small.
Excellent coach. Approachable and responsive. Best of all my power has rebounded post collarbone/shoulder blade surgery and I’m riding better than I ever have. Shayne will give credit when credit is due and also be straight forward when he knows there is improvement to be gained.
