About Me:
From the first time I rode a bike (at age 4) I fell in love with bikes. I started racing BMX at age 8, where I earned my Junior WP Colours.  I got my first mountain bike in 1991, and since that first ride on a very rainy day, where I came home drenched, freezing and covered in mud, mountain biking has always been my passion.

I currently focus on Downhill and Enduro. I have raced (and earned podiums) in most cycling disciplines. I have a cycling coaching certificate from the Sports Science Institute of South Africa. I am also a qualified fitness coach and have a diploma in Sports Nutrition. My passion for coaching and riding, combined with identifying a need for  skills development  in the Tygerberg area, inspired me to start Trail Savvy.

In order to be confident on the bike, have more fun and reduce injuries, learning the fundamentals is essential. You can then take your riding further to become a skilled, confident rider by natural and gradual progression. I currently offer individual skills coaching, group skills coaching as well as training plans. I will also be adding group rides due to the demand for it. It combines a fun ride that improves your fitness & skills , with the camaraderie of a group of fellow riders.

I offer free coaching for ladies who are aged 40+ who want to get into Downhill & Enduro. Please get in touch to find out more.
