Meet the Team
John is a highly experienced ski teacher running his own winter business in Les Arcs. Married to Carolyn with 2 young daughters, he is a regular cyclosportive rider and member of the Macot la Plagne club.
His passion for riding and racing takes him all over France and and John races every year in the Etape du Tour and many other major amateur events. Recent results include 57th place in this year's Etape (4th British rider) and 20th in the Tour du Mont Blanc (1st British rider). His ski career as a trainer to other instructors has made the transition to cycle coaching a natural one and John is a qualified Level 3 coach with the Association of British Cycling Coaches.
Carolyn is a regular cyclosportive rider and member of the Macot La Plagne Club. Her success in this male dominated sport has been impressive as is her cooking and hospitality at our chalet base in Bellentre. Carolyn is a regular guide on out trips and is currently pursuing her cycle coaching qualification with the ABCC. Carolyn has been involved with coaching skiing for many years in her native Australia as well as Europe and certainly won't hold back with any advice!
Derek is a regular guide on most of our trips and clocks up huge mileage on his bike every year. He knows the roads of the Alps intimately and is always on hand to dish out encouragement, advice and the odd bit of abuse! His bike experience and mechanical knowledge make Derek an essential part of our team.
Martin is a passionate cyclist but fortunately for Alpine Cadence he's a passionate driver/support man too! Martin is always on hand to help with all the logistics of our trips. His knowledge of the area, mechanical knowledge,ongoing enthusiasm and ability to solve just about any problem is second to none. Martin has lived in the area for over 20 years and we're very lucky to have him on the team.
