Modern bicycles have over 20 different adjustment points which allow a nearly unlimited number of riding positions. Ensuring a correct position is vital for avoiding injury and ensuring comfort for long sessions in the saddle.
BSPC offers a comprehensive service for cyclists of all levels in a custom studio with cycling physiotherapists, Andrew Wynd and Pat Ryan. Both cycling physiotherapists are keen riders themselves, with a combined 15 years of experience in assisting professional cyclists to first timers. They understand what it feels like to be in-tune with your bike and out on the open road.
Our method is unique and is unlike anything you will experience at a bike store or other "bike fitters". We treat every cyclist as an individual and therefore an individual approach is required. No two bike setups will be the same. There is no recipe!
Some bike fitters are experts in feet, some are trained bike mechanics, some base their method on their personal experience. Many have done little more than a weekend course. As professional Sports Physiotherapists who cycle themselves, Andrew and Pat are in a unique position to provide whole body expertise, from fingers to toes and necks to knees.
A session involves comprehensive musculoskeletal screening and detailed examination of the rider's unique body size, symmetry and injury history. Once an understanding of the cyclist's needs and limitations are discovered, attention is turned to the position on the bike. Bike measurements are taken and a detailed video analysis is performed to assess technique, provide feedback and analyse the rider and bicycle interaction.
Appropriate adjustments can be made on-site or referral to an appropriate mechanic, if more complicated changes are required. If required, a tailored exercise or treatment program is prescribed to ensure the biomechanical aspect is addressed to treat or prevent injury.
