Doug has been a member of the local cycling community for many years. He is a former Elite road racer. His favourite races were long and hilly and he was renowned for his staying power – not his sprinting ability! Doug was the National Masters Road Race Champion in 2017 and raced at a national level in the UK as well as abroad. In Time Trialling, Doug was a consistent winner of Open and club events- although he never quite got the elusive sub 20 minute time on the Hemel CC Club 10 that he sought!
Doug’s interest in bike fitting started when – as a racer – he sought ways to deal with his own fit issues and those of his friends. He has first-hand experience of many fit- related issues, a strong understanding of bio-mechanics relating to cycling and running and a wealth of knowledge relating to physical performance in all sports.
These days Doug cycles for fun and adventure and loves to run in his spare time.
