RPM Coaching is owned and managed by Rob Mortlock, a Bedfordshire based British Cycling Level 3 coach and Cytech mechanic.
I have been a professional cycling coach for over a decade. Not simply by having my own coaching business, but by being employed full time as a coach by leading organisations.
For four years I was a regional coach for British Cycling, involved in coaching many young riders who have since become Great Britain Cycling Team names. Being invited overseas to accompany the Olympic Development programme team during the UCI Junior Nations Cup was a particular highlight and a valuable insight into professional cycle sport.
During this time I was able to complete further education in both coaching and the wider area of sport and leisure; studying for a degree whilst in full time employment and also coaching individual riders to success at local and national level events.
Moving on from British Cycling in 2014, I became Head Coach at the London Olympic Velodrome (or Lee Valley VeloPark as it was renamed) managing the coaching team across 4 disciplines. This opportunity provided some unique experiences, working with everyone from Olympic legends to TV celebrities.
After nearly 6 years there, I decided to focus full-time on my own coaching business with the belief that any rider should be able to access high quality coaching at a sensible and realistic price.
I find helping others to achieve their goals particularly satisfying, and I enjoy continually learning about developments in sport and equipment. Adding Cytech qualifications to my underpinning engineering knowledge means I am able to offer customers comprehensive services for both bike and rider.
