Rider Services

We believe bike fitting is an essential part of creating harmony between rider and bike. As avid cyclists ourselves we understand the demands of our beloved sport on the human body and dedicate our time to researching and indentifying ways to increase efficiency and support, limit stresses and prevent injury. To ensure this approach to every rider we see, all our bike fit services include an in depth off-bike assessment, rider interview and specific stretching and exercise recommendations. We use proven bike fit technologies to measure, monitor and record the changes we make and provide you with a comprehensive report to take away.

In order to match you to the most suitable level of service, we have given some details below to help you choose. If you are still unsure what to book, or would like to discuss specific requirements please feel free to email us with your enquiry or request a call back.

Best suited for riders doing less than 5 hours per week and recommended to help with mild discomfort in one area of their riding.

We then closely observe you riding on a turbo trainer at varying effort levels to identify areas of adjustment required to improve the overall comfort and efficiency of your riding position.

Aero Testing

This booking is aimed at making you faster! With our specialist software and camera we create a virtual wind tunnel that allows us to measure frontal area in real-time. Combined with power data (Watts) we can calculate theoretical speed and time on the road. We can then test changes in position such as arm pads, hand position, handlebar height along with postural changes to the way you ride in order to increase speed and save you energy. Best suited to Time Trialists riding without injury or bike fit concerns, this session does not include biomechanical assessment.

We welcome riders to bring multiple items of equipment for testing.

New Bike Advisory

Looking to treat yourself to a new machine? We're here to help you choose the very best bike for you! At the initial appointment we will carry out a visual bike fit on your current bike (or our studio bike) with adjustable components to ensure you are in an optimum riding position. From there we can then spend time going through your shortlist of potential bikes highlighting which will suit best your riding needs and individual physiology. This booking includes a second appointment once you have purchased your dream bike, then fine tuning it to match you perfectly.

Sports Massage

A professional massage is a fantastic way to relieve muscle tension and aid muscular repair. It is also an effective method of relieving pain associated with tightness and imbalances. Massage treatments can greatly compliment bike fit services. Targeted massage therapy can speed up the adaptation to your new riding position, improve posture and help to restore soft tissue function. Our staff are fully qualified in sports massage and soft tissue therapy and are happy to discuss the best treatment for you.
