Cyclist Injury Assessment and Bike Fitting

From North Yorkshire Physiotherapy.

Cyclist Injury Assessment and Bike Fitting at NYP is a new service that we are offering for cyclists of all levels. This service is aimed at:

  • maximising performance
  • maximising comfort
  • decreasing pain whilst cycling
  • preventing pain whilst cycling

Bike fit will include a combination of:

  • physiotherapist assessment of the ranges of motion of the cyclist
  • assessment of the strength and flexibility of the cyclist
  • assessing the position of the cyclist on the bike

Cycling is a form of exercise that should not cause pain. Therefore, most injuries on a bike are caused by trauma. Overuse or static loading injuries are due to poor biomechanics on the bike.

We aim to correct these by addressing both the rider and the bike to find the optimum position that the rider is able to assume to improve comfort, pain, and performance.

This service is conducted by Dallas Newton who is an experienced cyclist and student of all things cycling. He has experience of working with many sports people, from the professional to the weekend warrior.

Steve Binks – a remembrance

In case you’ve missed the tribute to Steve which appeared in the Evening Gazette website we’ve included the link here.

 

in remembrance of Steve there will be a minute’s applause before the start of tomorrow’s parkrun in Stewart Park (23 Nov) and several members of the club are taking part in the run wearing their Wheelers cycling jerseys. There are more details on the Stewart parkrun Facebook page.

Freewheeling Competition – 3 November

The annual CWCC Freewheeling Competition was held this morning on Stone Stoup Hill outside Ingleby Greenhow. There was a reasonable turnout despite a soggy start to the day.

The bookies’ favourites – Harry and Charlie Tanfield didn’t disappoint finishing first and second respectively. However, third place went to a dark horse, Neil Proctor, who seemed to still have plenty of momentum left when the put his feet on the ground a tad too early!

The recording of the positions was a bit hit and miss but I think the next few riders were Paul Sanderson,  Andy Curson, Tom Levell, Marcus Smith, Dan Waring, Andrew Kneeshaw…..

There were a couple of photographers there – Marcus and Richard Carter so expect some snaps on social media.
