"Learning to ride a bike can be one of the best decisions of your life."
Coach James Borda
James Borda’s number one goal as a coach is to get more people on bikes to experience the joy and freedom of cycling. With an Exercise Science bachelor’s degree from Ohio Wesleyan along with competitive history and customer-service experience in top-notch bicycle shops, James is an expert listener who pays keen attention to safety and injury prevention while helping you to develop your skills and discover the joys of cycling.
James caters to your specific needs and goals, looking to identify and overcome your specific challenges while developing confidence that can be carried into day-to-day life. His main priority is your overall health and wellness, both mentally and physically. For those interested, he also enthusiastically supports development of new cyclists into triathletes, cycle commuters and bike tourists.
James’ coaching style is built on fundamentals and consistency when learning something new. The big skill of “riding a bike” is built from much smaller pieces that he’ll help you achieve. James starts lessons with bike fitting, balance, proper form and safety. Safety can extend beyond riding fundamentals to rules of the road and/or bike path, as well as basic bicycle maintenance.
In his several years of working in a bicycle shop, James has seen firsthand the joys biking can bring. He wants to share those opportunities with you.
Besides cycling, James has coached multiple other sports, including swimming, lacrosse and triathlon. His experience in coaching covers all age groups: children, teens and adults. James has a welcoming style that fosters confidence. He is fully invested in your feelings of comfort, safety, enjoyment, and skill development. James is a ‘hands on’ coach who participates alongside you, as passionate for your cycling success as he is for his own.
Originally from the East Coast and the third born of a set of triplets, James has enjoyed many outdoor activities with his brother and sister, from hiking and swimming, to playing as lacrosse teammates. He is passionate about his rescue puppy, Koda, an energetic Shepherd/Lab mix. When James is not riding for enjoyment or competition, you can find him hiking around Colorado on trails with Koda and his community of friends who love the outdoors. James has found great enjoyment in our National Parks, ever since visiting them on childhood family vacations. James is currently amazed by the beauty of Colorado and is taking full advantage of all it has to offer.
