Mountain Bike Coaching

Whether it’s a 6 or 12 hr event, the Whaka 100, Contact Epic, Motatapu or Karapoti or ticking the Old Ghost Road off your bucket list- the bigger the goal the better!
Develop your riding skills, learn about nutrition and recovery to get the most out of every training ride as guided by your CP Coach.


Our CP Coaching Team love riding bikes and are passionate about helping you become the best you can be.  To find out more about our awesome team of CP Coaches click here.

The Start Up Process – the first step
This is all about getting to know you and coming up with a game plan of how we will achieve your goal.  The first step is to determine your easy wins – how will you improve the most with the least possible time and effort.  The key outcome of this meeting with your coach is a one page road map that will help to guide our build up over the coming months.  Click here to get started

Communication is key
We need to know how you are going.  If you are standing at the top of a hill after an epic climb or if the wheels have fallen off and you are battling then we need to know about that too.  By keeping in close contact we can celebrate with you or help come up with a solution to get your restarted.

Keeping track of your progress
Using a number of tools such as Training Peaks, Strava, sports science testing and regular goal setting with your CP coach we will ensure that you continue to take small steps to achieving your big hairy goal.

Being part of the team
An endurance event or training for one can be a very individual undertaking.  By joining Team CP you can be a part of something bigger than yourself.  Meet others with the same goal as you or have someone jump out of the bushes and cheer you on.

I contacted Team CP with a goal of completing 'The Pioneer' MTB 7 day stage race. I had no real experience of riding in any race / using clip pedals / off road technical skills / nutrition / Base training. But in under a year I achieved that goal, and many more.
Thanks Team, for all the advice on my amazing journey.

"Put in the effort, and the reward will come".
