Testimonial: "I really can't find the words to express how much working with a coach has changed my life. Rafeeq made me realize anything, not just finishing an ultra endurance mountain bike race is attainable. Without his help I would not be the person I am today.

My goal event was the Munga, an ultra endurance mountain bike race across a semi desert located in South Africa in the midst of summer. For 12 months I trained with Rafeeq from RIDEANDRACE and this is the first time in my life that I used a structured training plan and worked with a coach. He is incredibly professional and knowledgeable. I went into the event mentally and physically prepared for everything and despite it being a challenging event I felt strong throughout.

Thanks for the encouragement, pushing me to get fitter and stronger, guidance, training specificity and perfectly balanced preparation. I am immensely grateful for all of your effort and highly recommend this for anyone wanting to take on a challenge, no matter how big or small it may be."

Hi! I am Rafeeq, owner of RIDEANDRACE, and I help ultra-endurance/distance cyclists train (effectively) more efficiently. 


My racing and training experience extends to 12 and 24 hours solo road and mountain bike racing, self-supported and semi supported ultra-endurance/distance racing, single-day, criteriums, time trials, XC, marathon and stage racing. I have a keen interest in solo bike challenges and adventure; I enjoy riding a bicycle far, I have a particular interest and expertise in ultra-distance and adventure cycling however, I do work with individuals who are interested in shorter distance cycling and individuals who want to use cycling as a medium to improve their overall well-being.​

In my approach to providing a solution, the person comes first and not the athlete; the human element is the most important thing when helping you achieve your goal. 


All accomplishments start with a decision to try. Let's get started.
