South West's Cycle Fitting Specialists
The aim of your session will be to achieve a tailored position on the bicycle which is for you aerodynamic, efficient, where power is maximally converted into speed and where you are as comfortable as possible whilst avoiding loads and strains likely to result in injury. In short the position that will enable you to cover a greater distance at the same rate of work whilst preventing the occurrence of injuries.
Before you get on your bike Ride will take time to find out about you. How you move, your sporting and injury history and your cycling goals. Ride then look at your riding style and set to work on achieving your optimum fit.
Your fit gives you the opportunity to see and understand what is happening when you change your position on the bike, what position optimizes power by recruitment of the highest possible number of muscle fibers, whilst remaining comfortable.

Just had to let you know that my ride last night, the "twin hills of doom", I completely smashed. Never felt so powerful and strong... a very pleased punter here!
Had a bike fit a week ago now. Already feel so much stronger and more comfortable on the bike. Great advice and service. would recommend to anyone-worth every penny.
First class job again from Paul at RIDE yesterday, the third bike he has set up for me over the last few years. I cannot recommend him more highly!
