Spoken Coaching

Spoken Coaching was built out of a need for top quality cycling coaching for all types of riders.

Based out of Cambridge, the Home of Cycling, Spoken Coaching provides athletes with a professional platform to achieve their goals. Coaches Blair Taylor and Alex Heaney have both gained their knowledge from years of bike racing and coaching at a high level.

Using online software, they're able to supply and review personalised training programs. With athletes based all around the world, you don't have to be local to take advantage of their services.

Coaching is a passion for these two, they relish in the enjoyment of seeing people achieve their goals. With this in mind, they aim to work with you to give you every opportunity to succeed by utilizing all aspects of cycling to make a complete athlete.

With Spoken Coaching you'll get a coach and you'll have access to our Velogicfit Bike Fitting Services, lab testing and the ability to purchase a range of cycling specific products at a special Spoken Coaching athlete price.


Spoken Coaches

Alex Heaney

Alex joined Blair  in 2019 bringing new skills and perspectives to the business.

Blair coached Alex over the past 3 years and has seen him come on in leaps and bounds on the bike winning national titles and stages of the Tour of Southland. As well as having a passion for coaching Alex has a passion for what makes you go fast, be it equipment or training.

We are looking forward to seeing Alex not only continue to succeed as a rider but also pass on the knowledge he has learnt both on the bike to our athletes.


Blair Taylor

Blair has been coaching since 2007 after having a fellow rider asking for some advice, this was the beginning of Blair's coaching career. Being involved in the sport it became apparent to him, that attention to detail was paramount in achieving success. This created a new passion for coaching and since then, Blair's coaching knowledge and leadership has gone from strength to strength with his riders winning National titles through to the World Championships. Blair has great communication and fosters a strong coach/athlete relationship which is paramount in achieving success at all levels.
