What is the difference between a coach and a mentor?

I want to ride a bike. Which professional should I go to for support?

Chose a…

Consultant – to work out which bike to ride

Therapist – to help you get over the fear and actually get on the thing

Mentor – to teach you how they have ridden the bike and model how you might like to do so yourself

Coach – to put you on the bike, help you pedal and then run along side as you get the job done

Thanks to Jairek Robbins for his words of wisdom in an interview with Dan Bradbury.
