Navan sports psychologist Alan Heary has just launched a guide to build confidence in people who cycle seriously or for fun.

He told Meath Live, ‘A lack of confidence can reduce the fun you have on your bike. Even worse, it can escalate into a downwards spiral of fear that can limit your chances of improvements in fitness, skill and enjoyment.

When you complete the program, you can feel confident any time you get on the bike, no matter what the weather is doing, how big the group is or even if your descending off the Alps.

Included in “The Confident Cyclist Program” is a day by day plan which can be implemented easily into your physical training program, leading to amazing results – guaranteed.’
