She became my first cycling coach when I turned professional and has continued to guide, encourage, and challenge me throughout my career.
As a #newbie, it was an absolute privilege to take on cycling in the Italian country side with Alison.
Is Alison a guide or a coach? Hard to say — I honestly think we got 2 for 1!
My guided ride with Alison in the hills around Lucca was the most fun I've ever had on a bike!
I practically got a training camp and a guided tour!
Alison’s love of cycling and Italy is truly inspiring for both the somewhat new to cycling and the lifetime aficionado.
I had an amazing ride!
It was a perfect day.
Riding with Alison is a gift.
I had never ridden on a road bike before, but Alison was an incredible coach providing me with the best tips and tricks and within the first few kilometers, I felt very comfortable and confident on the road.
She immediately put my fears to rest and led me through parts of the landscape that I would have surely missed left to my own resources.
Lucca to Siena
At the risk of hyperbole, riding from Lucca to Siena is a transcendent experience.
It was worth every penny.
After our last trip, I was so inspired by her that I took up cycling and have been training every day since.
Where could I soak up the sun as I sit in a piazza for an espresso and also challenge myself on mountain climbs with beautiful ocean vista descents?
It was my first time in Tuscany, and I wanted to see all the beautiful scenery around as well as having some good training days.
After getting home, I found myself shopping for – and buying – a new road bike.
Humbled, appreciative, and unforgettable cycling in Lucca/Tuscany.
The decision to ride your bike through the hills of Tuscany is easy, but it can go downhill quickly if you're not with the right guide. Alison is that right guide!
After riding with Alison, I learned the technique to descend in control, take my time on the corners, and ride with confidence.
