Cycling is really our first love in terms of sport. We have both taken numerous long-range cycling holidays throughout Europe, tackled sportives, been involved in TT’s and still operate a business within the cycling tourism industry. As such, we are well aware of the performance benefits that can be gained from a structured conditioning regime and equally the common postural problems associated with cyclists.

We have tended to find that other cyclists are not as aware, and the majority still plump for the miles, miles, miles mantra. While there is definitely a place for endurance rides within your program, this should be combined with a variety of other training techniques in order to truly improve performance. You won’t find Cav or Bradley Wiggins solely cranking it out on the open road day after day. Also, due to the nature of the pedalling motion and the position of a rider when seated, cyclists are notorious for their rounded shoulders and pelvic tilt. Leaving these unattended is a recipe for major back pain (upper and lower) in the long term and increased risk of injury in the short term – we tackle these head on.

Rather than spending ££££s on the latest shiny carbon gadget that only reduces the weight of your bike by a few grams, gain a real performance increase!
