What you'll do
We'll fire up our video streams to meet in my home training lab. I'll show you my setup and we'll warm up together over group introductions, where we'll learn about each other’s favorite rides, tours, courses, and neighborhoods! Over the next 40 minutes, I'll take you on a journey that weaves my life story and lessons learned from sport through five of my favorite rides around the world, with each being its own marquee triathlon venue. We'll stop in Yorkshire, London, Leeds, Rio, and Kona. At each virtual stop, I’ll take 5-10 minutes to share some photos from my experience, talk logistics like what makes each course challenging, and then have a 3- to 5-minute interval training for the specifics of the course, before a rest and time for questions. You'll get an inside feel for my strategies that led to success at each destination. After about 40 minutes total of riding, we'll have a cool-down, where I'll answer any questions about my training, journey as an Olympian, foundation, kit, or goals for the summer. Don't be shy! As we wrap up, I'll show you my gold medals, up close and personal. At the end of this experience, I hope that my story and our ride leave you with a new perspective and fuel for your goals in sport and beyond.

I’m a 2-time Olympic gold medalist and the only Olympian to be a double champion in triathlon (London 2012 and Rio 2016). As a Yorkshire native and aficionado, I’m extremely passionate about the community and geography of the Yorkshire Dales. I enjoy being outside and encouraging people to be active. I’m very much looking forward to sharing what I love and how I train locally when preparing for events around the world.
