Enhance Your Comfort

 

First and foremost, riding a bike should be comfortable and enjoyable. Make the most out of your investment, don't neglect this part of your experience. Having your body in the right position will keep your muscles more relaxed so that you can ride longer and further.

 

Prevent Injuries

 

A poor bike fit can cause serious overuse injuries if left unchecked. The foot pedal interface is one of the most important aspects of a proper bike fit. If your cleats are not properly adjusted on your shoes and your saddle is incorrectly positioned, you could be causing unnecessary strain on your joints and muscles. At 90 pedal strokes per minute for each leg on a 3 hour ride, that's 32,400 pedal strokes!

 

Performance Benefits

 

The benefits of a proper bike fit don't stop with enhanced comfort, being in the right position will also improve efficiency and power. By improving your weight distribution and leverage over the pedals, a significant difference with regard to power and force can be felt throughout each pedal stroke.

It doesn't matter whether you're a competive cyclist or a weekend warrior, having your fit dialled in could be the difference that allows you to keep up with your faster friends, out-sprint them on that favorite stretch of road or get on the podium at your next event!

Don't delay any longer, contact Coach Powell today to schedule your Vancouver bike fit.

How do we do it?

 

  • A group warm-up at a moderate pace to get the muscles ready.
  • At the workout destination, a group workout that each individual can do at their own pace.
  • If we’re doing hill repeats, then some people might do 4 repeats and others might do 6 depending on ability.
  • The intervals are generally done on short loops or out-and-back sections of road which makes it easy for different levels of cyclists to train together.
