In the fall of 2019, at 65 years old, I started to ride again after spending a year off of the bike due to a knee injury caused by pushing myself too hard on 100% of my rides, something too many of us do. I sought out a coach to learn how not to injure myself while enjoying my favorite hobby, and Training Peaks recommended Coach OB. 3 years and thousands of miles later, I can say it was one of the best calls I ever made. Coach OB has become a friend and a mentor as he has worked with me through injury and illness to put me in the best physical condition possible, allowing me to participate in century rides and Fondos, lofty goals that I was not sure I would ever have the endurance to achieve. Along the way, OB has freely shared his deep knowledge of the sport of cycling with me, and as a result of working with him the sport has become a part of my life in a way that I would not have imagined. I have had the pleasure of meeting many high level individuals in my life, and I would put O’Brien Forbes amongst them. Thanks Coach!
