Cycling is an excellent activity for all ages and activity levels. It is a great form of exercise and allows one to engage in the community in which they live. Whether you like to train outside, navigate new trails, or ride inside on a stationary bike or trainer, a properly fit bicycle is vital to avoiding injuries.
Do you feel back discomfort when you cycle? Do your hands go numb or notice increased neck pain while riding? Are your knees clicking while cycling? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, we can help. At Washington University Physical Therapy, our Cycling Clinic is more than just a “Bike Fit.” Whether it is a mountain bike, road bike, commuter bike, or aero bike, the way your bike fits you will dictate your overall performance and comfort.
