Your bike fit is personalized to your biomechanics and fitness goals and will take 2-3 hours.
Laura uses the science and methodology of the Serotta International Cycling Institute (SICI) combined with her knowledge of anatomy and kinesiology (the study of human movement) to provide professional services to cyclists of all disciplines to achieve their cycling goals.
Your bike fit is personalized to your biomechanics and fitness goals and will take 2-3 hours. After a detailed assessment of your alignment, flexibility, and strength, your bike fit will be tailored to you to optimize efficiency/performance, improve comfort, and decreased risk for injury/accelerate healing from an injury.
After your fit, you will be provided a home exercise program to address mobility/strength deficits to further improve your cycling performance and decrease risk for injury.
