The ultimate bikefit? In the saddle with former Team Sky physio Phil Burt
If you have already taken part in a sportive such as Ride London recently, or plan to do one (such as the new Velo South 100-mile event in the South Downs this September), it goes without saying that you need to be comfortable on your bike.
What’s more, hand in hand with comfort goes the avoidance of injury. I’m not a medic, but I know enough to be certain that if you’re getting pains during riding then it might already be too late.
One person who definitely has the correct medical background to assess your riding position is Phil Burt, who spent 12 years as British Cycling’s head of physiotherapy and another five years as consultant physiotherapist to Team Sky.
