Vancouver Bike Fit

Vancouver Bike Fit

A professional bike fit is the first step to optimizing your comfort and cycling performance. Coach Powell is your certified Vancouver bike fit specialist.

From the foot pedal interface to proper seat and handlebar positioning, having your bike fit properly adjusted will allow you to get the most out of your bike. Riding a bike should be fun AND comfortable!

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.

Vancouver Outdoor Cycling Workouts

Vancouver Outdoor Cycling

Join a Vancouver outdoor cycling workout & learn how to implement technique & strategy into your rides. Connect with teammates & breathe in the fresh air!

Any cyclist will tell you that there is nothing like riding outdoors. A structured interval workout outside improves your overall power and speed as well as your hill-climbing ability.

Whether you are training for a Gran Fondo, a triathlon or simply training to stay fit, these interval based workouts will leave you feeling stronger than ever!

 

Contact Us

 

Results are guaranteed when you follow our weekly program.

 

  • A different focus each day: strength/hill intervals or power/threshold/tempo intervals.
  • Technical tips and guidance in each session.
  • Personal technical advice as you need it.
  • A fun group that will motivate you to work hard each week.

All levels of road cyclists and triathletes are welcome! If you're confident on your bike and can ride between 23 and 26 km per hour on flat pavement, you’ll have no trouble keeping up during these fun and challenging Vancouver outdoor cycling workouts.

* Please note that these are interval based workouts and not cycling lessons. Although you don't need to be fast to ride with us, you do need to be comfortable riding your bike on the road. Some of the hills are between 10-15%.

 

Contact Us

How do we do it?

 

  • A group warm-up at an easy to moderate speed to get the muscles ready. We stay together for this.
  • At the workout destination, a group workout that each individual can do at their own pace.
  • If we are doing hill repeats, some people might do 4 repeats and others might do 6 depending on ability. In the end, we all do the same workout and spend the same amount of time working hard.
  • 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 and support each other.
