Cycle & Bike Fit

Specialising in services for the recreational cyclist.

 

Did you know that cycling is now the 4th most popular sport in Australia and that bike sales have outstripped car sales for 10 years in a row.

Passionate about cycling? So are we, in fact when we're not cycling we’re promoting cycling as the ideal exercise for people of all ages.

If you’re experiencing a physical problem that is cycle related, it makes sense that you seek the advice from a health care professional who understands the unique problems cyclists face.

Tom & Neil have over 30 years of clinical experience between them, and have worked together for more than 10 years. Since graduating both Tom and Neil have furthered their training and qualifications in the areas of biomechanics and treatment of cyclists.

When they’re not treating patients or spending time with their families you’ll find them cycling. Both have been passionate road cyclists for over 10 years, averaging about 200km each week.

We offer a range of professional services to meet the needs of our fellow cycling community:

  • Cycle specific Physiotherapy treatment and advice
  • Cycle specific Sports massage
  • Bike fit
  • Pilates for core fitness
  • Guided bike tours for recreational riders

 

 

Bike fit

 

Whether you ride just on the weekend or train several times a week, you should be comfortable on your bike. If your bicycle doesn’t fit you properly then you are probably feeling pain caused by your body trying to adjust to a bike that’s not right for you.

 

If you’re training more and the only results you see are more pain and discomfort then you might be surprised to know that a good bike fit will improve your pedaling efficiency and actually make you faster.

 

A poorly fitted bike may cause:

  

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Saddle sores
  • Foot pain and numbness
  • Hand pain and numbness
  • Knee pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Groin pain
  • Muscle cramping
  • Fatigue
  • Wrist pain
  • Ankle pain

 

Whether you’re new to cycling and wanting to avoid injury or you are an experienced rider having problems, a professional bike fit will ensure you reach your cycling goals, fun, fitness, and freedom from pain and injury.
