Coaching & Ride Leaders

"Our coaches believe in a wholistic approach to training" 

Coaches

Led by our head coach Ross Dyer, Midland Cycle Club has a number of coaches and assistants that help out with both our road and track programs.  

Becoming a coach

As a club we are committed to providing a safe environment for cycling. As such we ensure that all our training rides have a certified coach in attendance.

We are always looking at expanding our coaching base. If you are interested in coaching or assisting with coaching juniors and/or adults, the club supports this development through providing specific courses for both road and track.

Ride Leaders

Our ride leaders have completed our own ride leader accreditation course and often lead our various training rides.

  • Lachlan McCrea

  • David Anderson

  • Wayne Deany

  • Mark Everett

  • Kylie Allan

  • Ben Heald

 

Many of our ride leaders are also club coaches. Each ride leader wears a special MCC jersey to distinguish them within the group.

 

The ride leaders have each completed an online course. The course, jointly created by South Perth Rouleurs and MCC, covers various topics, including dealing with conflict, group management, understanding the needs of junior riders within the peloton, road safety and road rules.

 

Ride leaders are first aid trained and have each been given a mini first aid kit to carry with them whilst riding.

 

The MCC committee would ask that you give your support to all of our ride leaders and afford them the respect they deserve.

 

Inaugural ride leaders were:

  • Luke Dawson

  • Jan O’Brien

  • Lachlan McCrea

  • Caroline Haines

  • David Anderson

  • Mark Everett

  • Luke Morris
