What you'll do

We'll fire up our video streams to meet in my home training lab. I'll show you my setup and we'll warm up together over group introductions, where we'll learn about each other’s favorite rides, tours, courses, and neighborhoods!

Over the next 40 minutes, I'll take you on a journey that weaves my life story and lessons learned from sport through five of my favorite rides around the world, with each being its own marquee triathlon venue. We'll stop in Yorkshire, London, Leeds, Rio, and Kona. At each virtual stop, I’ll take 5-10 minutes to share some photos from my experience, talk logistics like what makes each course challenging, and then have a 3- to 5-minute interval training for the specifics of the course, before a rest and time for questions. You'll get an inside feel for my strategies that led to success at each destination.

After about 40 minutes total of riding, we'll have a cool-down, where I'll answer any questions about my training, journey as an Olympian, foundation, kit, or goals for the summer. Don't be shy! As we wrap up, I'll show you my gold medals, up close and personal.

At the end of this experience, I hope that my story and our ride leave you with a new perspective and fuel for your goals in sport and beyond.

I’m a 2-time Olympic gold medalist and the only Olympian to be a double champion in triathlon (London 2012 and Rio 2016). As a Yorkshire native and aficionado, I’m extremely passionate about the community and geography of the Yorkshire Dales. I enjoy being outside and encouraging people to be active. I’m very much looking forward to sharing what I love and how I train locally when preparing for events around the world.

This is a very unique experience in which Alistair shares some highlights from past races and answers questions from the small group. It's a truly memorable ride for avid cyclists or triathletes.

What an incredible experience getting to hear Ali’s race memories and tactics, for a great cause. So glad to have booked this - Just brilliant fun even though he encouraged us to work hard - I’m knackered now! (hey, when a double Olympic gold medalist tells you to pedal harder you do as you’re told!!)

It's extremely rare to have personal access to a x2 time Olympian and world class triathlete (who is at the top of their game) in an experience that felt inclusive, inspiring, friendly, open and educational. I thoroughly recommend signing up for this IF you can find a spot—its popular! Al is an awesome host who allowed for conversation and gave the group real insight into what it takes to perform at world class level.....and win 2 gold medals at consecutive Olympics! And it's for a great cause too—getting kids into triathlon.

I really enjoyed the experience - chatting through a few races whilst going through the course. Not so easy to interact, whilst trying to put in a good honest workout on the bike - but its easy enough to cheat on Zoom. I'm not sure if Alistair will be doing nay of these in the future but I'd strongly recommend to book one if he does.

Al was a great story-telling. I could picture the race memories he shared as if I was there. Getting to ask questions live was also awesome. He is a friendly, knowledgable guy who obviously enjoys his career!

A unique and really enjoyable experience with an absolute sporting legend. Alistair was friendly, warm, and open and it was a real privilege to be able to chat and hear about his amazing experiences. There was good banter amongst the group and lots of opportunities to ask questions. Thank you Alistair, after 2 months in lockdown in France this was really a breath of fresh air! Karen
