Professional Bike Fitting Certification

This course will provide an evidenced-based and practical approach to the evaluation and treatment of the injured cyclist. Didactic lectures will focus on current literature pertaining to epidemiology, cycling mechanics, and bike fitting. A substantial portion of the course will be devoted to lab, so participants will be confident in performing a full bike fit by the end of the course. The overall course objective is to provide participants with the “whole picture” of rehabilitating injured cyclists with an emphasis on bike fitting.

*Participants will need to either bring a bike to the course or rent a bike from a local shop, recommendations for local shops will be made by available*
