Coaching Services

At the Pacific Cycling Centre (PCC) we have over 30 years of experience working with cyclists and triathletes of all levels: from those just starting out in the sport to World Champions. No matter your level or age, we are driven by one principle: personalized coaching. We learn who you are as an athlete and an individual and create the right training program for you. We believe it is because of this approach that we have seen the highest levels of accomplishment in our athletes time and time again.

While all of our athletes get the same level of commitment we give our Olympic athletes, we recognize that not everyone can train 40 hours a week or wants to “eat, drink and sleep cycling.” We offer five service levels so that you can find the program that best matches your time, goals, and budget. But remember, no matter what program you choose, it is just a starting point. As you and your coach develop a relationship, the program will evolve to what you need to reach your peak potential.

And remember, while we always love to get our athletes to Victoria, we know how to coach from a distance. Many of our top athletes are on the road most of the year. We have developed a system of communication to ensure our athletes get the same caliber of training they’d get at our cycling centre.
