Fit to Ride - Bike Fit Evaluation
Whether you're an avid cyclist or just want to improve your cycling performance, our Fit to Ride - Bike Fit program can help. During a 60- or 90-minute Bike Fit evaluation, our physical therapists perform a musculoskeletal assessment to determine any flexibility or strengthening imbalances that may be causing you pain or lead to injuries during cycling. Then we provide exercise suggestions and make bicycle modifications to help you achieve the best cycling position for maximum comfort and efficiency.
We also offer cyclists video analysis using the CompuTrainer 3D interactive motion software. This analysis provides you with your instant/average/peak: watts, cadence, heart rate, speed and distance.
Our physical therapists who perform Bike Fit evaluations are avid cyclists and certified by Serotta International Cycling Institute Opens new window (SICI). SICI is a member-based organization dedicated to the development and integration of cycling science to improve the cycling experience. SICI believes that every cyclist, regardless of their ability, should be able to ride a bike that fits their body and their goals.
Bike Fit Evaluation with Musculoskeletal Assessment (Option 1; 1 hour): $150
A musculoskeletal assessment is conducted to determine any flexibility or strengthen imbalances that may cause pain or may lead to injuries during cycling. Cyclists receive exercise suggestions specific to their individual assessment.
The Bike Fit evaluation requires that cyclists bring their bike and cycling shoes. The analysis is conducted with you seated on your bike, which is secured to the bike-fit trainer equipment. The evaluation includes analyzing frame size; handlebar position; saddle height and position; reach, stem length and angle; and knee alignment.
Cyclists receive suggestions for optimal riding positions, pedaling techniques, and bicycle modifications. We help achieve the perfect cycling position for maximum comfort and efficiency.
