Roadie Rob has been running his bike school for more than15 years. He discovered his love for riding at a young age, which developed into a passion for triathlons, where he was an Australian representative for 6 years at the Triathlon World Cup. After competing at a national level, he was often asked for riding advice which is where his passion for coaching started. In his 15 years as a coach, Rob has learned more from beginners than professional riders, and understands that patience is key. His motto as a coach is “smiles are more important than medals.”
