At Lead Out Cycling we’re passionate about cycling and believe it’s one of the best forms of exercise, travel, stress release, socialising and even fashion!

This belief drove our passion to begin a coaching company that ensures that cycling is accessible to anyone. Be it the criterium racer aiming to move up a grade in the local club races, or to those who have just started cycling and are looking to improve their skills and fitness on the bike.

Our coaches:

Mark Hudson: Several years ago on a sojourn in the U.K, Mark was given a bike at a pub from a patron to get home. After spending four weeks riding through France the bug had well and truly taken hold and Mark realised that the best place to be was on a bike. Mark now spends time riding throughout some of the great cycling spots in and around Melbourne. With an interest in both road and mountain bike racing you will find him at various events throughout the season.


  • Bachelor of Applied Science (Physical Education)
  • Cycling Australia Level 1 coach
  • Personal Trainer registered with ‘Physical Activity Australia’

Mick Carter: A life-long tragic cycling fan, Mick has always been fit and active, and a move to Melbourne from Canberra several years ago resulted in replacing mountain biking for road cycling and he has never looked back.
High level experience in sports coaching, coupled with a passion for seeing riders improve shows through in MC’s enthusiasm for helping Lead Out riders achieve their riding goals

Also part of our team of staff are experienced and qualified Ride Leaders who provide instruction and skills advice on our group rides.
