John has been fitting people on bikes since 2010 and has been a Certified Body Geometry fitter since 2012 and a ACE certified personal trainer since 2015. Using his personal trainer knowledge I am able to work with cyclists on their core strength and flexibility limitations. I have been able to help teach the level 1 fit class at Specialized Bicycle Component University in Morgan Hill, California on two occasions and had time in their wind tunnel working with Aero Bike Fit. I have worked with Retul in Boulder, Colorado using their Vantage 3D motion capture system and many other tools used in their detailed bike fit process.
John has enjoyed moving back to the UK, Horwich area, where he lives near his sister and brother in law, and niece and nephew. John and his wife have two lads who love anything active. They are rebuilding their bicycle collection after selling or giving their bicycles to friends prior to moving across the pond. John has been a competitive athlete since 1998 where he began running and racing, he wanted the extra challenge which started his love of triathlons, to fulfill his drive for more he began Adventure Racing. Once the boys were born cycling became his main passion that he has continued to use for exercise, mental health, a sensible amount of thrill, and socializing usually combined with good beer.
Bio. I have been a cyclist for 26 years, starting out as a mountain biker, then a triathlete doing all distances up to half Iron Man with the Olympic distance being my favorite. Then I moved on to be an Adventure racer with 24 to 30- hour races being my favorite distance, I like to use my bikes to commute and still ride Road, gravel and Mountain any chance a can.
