Adam – Mechanic and Coach
Adam is the biker that set the wheels of Boost in motion. Everything Boost stands for, Adam also stands for; his love of bikes, friendly nature, passion for good coffee and a willingness to be different.
It goes without saying that he’s a top class mechanic, a superb barista, a knowledgeable mountain bike guide and a good ear for a chat even if it doesn’t involve wheels or hot beverages.
Right now he’s also working for Specialized UK as their Turbo Event Co-ordinator so it’s safe to say he knows a thing or two about e-bikes! He’s also Rachael's husband...
Rachael – Coach, Journalist and Barista
Rachael is a mountain bike coach and barista, she’ll be the one you see at weekend events keeping the horse box ship shape and serving as many great tasting cups of coffee as she can.
She’s an experienced mountain bike journalist currently working for off-road.cc, she’s keen rider, enduro racer and and coach, qualified to L2 British Cycling coaching standards. Rachael enjoys coaching the introductions to mountain biking for beginner to intermediate riders, children and adults alike.
We have chosen to live and work in the Forest of Dean, just because it provides such awesome mountain bike trails and good grippy dirt all year round!
We have access to a vast number of trails and trail features from our doorstep in Bream near Lydney, there’s flowing singletrack, there’s steep tech, there’s bomb holes and drops offs, there are plenty of roots and there’s a rock garden or two as well. Plenty to get our teeth into whether coaching or just our riding our bikes and, when we get the chance, we get out and dig too. Not just to maintain the trails we ride but also to build the feature we’d like to coach on.

What’s that about coffee?
Our other passion is good coffee and we also run a mobile barista coffee unit from a converted horse trailer. That business is called Boost Coffee Co., next year you’ll find us at events such as the Malverns Classic, ‘Ard Rock and Mountain Mayhem to name but a few. We’ll be indulging in the two things we love the most, bikes and coffee!
To find out more or buy some of our Boost Blend coffee, just head over to Boost Coffee Co.
