James has an extensive and high-level background in behaviour change and coaching. He often combines his experience in these two areas to design and implement transformational projects that bring about positive change in community, education and sporting environments.
Before joining Cycling UK in 2017, James worked at Sustrans as their Head of Behaviour Change in London.
James has also worked for the UCI as one of their Worldwide Expert Coach Education Tutors. This has seen him tutoring and working alongside cycling federations all over the world, training their national coaches in best practice coaching skills and techniques.
With 15 years experience in community and education projects, James now focuses on how behaviour change techniques and coaching can bring about sustained change and ignite creative thinking. His holistic approach to both behaviour change and coaching, plus his passion for innovation sees him designing grassroots behaviour change projects that have been rolled out across the UK.
James loves all forms of cycling and this has seen him cycle touring across the Aland islands in Finland, racing his mountain bike in Wales and most importantly riding with his daughter at the weekends.
