📍Le ginocchia il loro affaticamento/indolenzimento o infortunio durante le nostre pedalate dipende solamente dalla nostra posizione in bici....la bici se ben settata è solo terapeutica per le ginocchia è non fonte di disagio o dolore....preservarlo e il primo obbiettivo🎯 che personalmente mi prefiggo🤷♂️...buon inizio settimana ricco di tante pedalate 🚵♀️🔜 #mfbikefit#bikefit#bikefitting#bikefitter
@triathlonwa cycling masterclass is just over 1week away. Join former international pro triathlete, now expert triathlon physiotherapist James Lewin (pictured) along with @starphysiowa colleagues Dan Davis, Nigel Travers and Damian Oldmeadow on 27th Feb to learn how to get the most out of your cycle leg. Aero tips, crank length science, bikefit and strength training will be among the topics covered. Get in touch with TWA for tickets!
What/why/how of Bike Fit and Cycling Injuries with @ryanignatz of @coloradomultisport !
We examine the process of a bike fit, why Ryan is the best in Boulder, and talk about the most common injuries resultant of an improper bike fit! We even included explanation of the injuries and videos teaching you how to fix it!

Here's a bit of the #peptalk I gave my #fempreneurs today. We are at the end of week 2 with 4 more weeks to go. Some of the ladies are feeling awesome about how far they've come in learning new ways to attract more of their ideal clients, while some are feeling like they are falling behind.
What's the source of your fear? And what's the worst that can happen if it comes true?
For me, there has been no such thing as FAILURE, only COURSE CORRECTION. Sure, it was painful in the moment and felt like failure, but those situations led to some pretty rad stuff!! Stay tuned here to find out more about the 6 Week Fempreneur School, or click the link in my bio.
Stay imperfect and awesome, Mamacitas!
Optimal saddle height is an interesting area of bike fitting; often it’s defined by measuring maximal knee extension within a range, usually 135-145° depending on landmarks being measured and the system being worked to. However, a saddle height variation of 3 or 4cm could easily sit within this “optimal range”, so how do we decide what our optimal is?
True optimisation goes beyond measuring angles, looking to influence the quality of positioning at each contact point, posture and pedal stroke. To achieve this, we need to learn the priorities of what we are trying to attain from the position, and the understand strengths and limitations of the athlete.
🎬 - Last week I worked with @aliciaspeake from @cycleteamldn to help her find some performance gains for this coming season. Although she has never had any particular pains or discomforts from her position, she has never felt particularly “aero” on the bike; so we made this the priority of the session. In terms of an initial analysis of her position, there wasn’t anything particularly bad about her position and would tick most the boxes of most systematic fitting, but to get “aero” it was clear that she was being restricted more so by her hip flexion range than hamstring range when trying to get into a more aerodynamic posture. By raising her saddle up, her upper body then allowed to flex from her hips into a lower, more aerodynamic position. The other major influences of this change are a lower centre of gravity and a shift of centre of mass towards the handlebars - for a bike with a race specific geometry and wanting to ride fast, weight of the handlebars is critical for stability when turning through corners fast....but it is a heck of a balancing act!
