The Ultimate Guide to Cycling Analytics
About this online course
As a professional data scientist and a re-born cyclist (following a break of almost 40 years) I was amazed at the progress that has been made within the cycling community in using data to improve cycling performance and enjoyment.
As well as data sensors and analysis apps there are a vast number of books, videos and scientific papers published every year, all aimed at improving your cycling performance regardless of your current level and ambitions.
I discovered that most of the serious guides were extremely technical and hard to digest, often taking two or three readings to make sense.
The other thing I noticed is that few took a holistic approach to the process of improvement but rather focused on a particular “Hot topic” such as training with Power Meters.
My aim in creating this course is to use my training in data science, my experience in coaching, and my position as an independent, agnostic commentator to take the current state of the art in training with data and deliver it in a way that makes it instantly useable by anyone who wants to be a better cyclist.
