Lee Prescott’s top tips

Cycling Weekly - - Fitness -

Don’t ne­glect the im­por­tance of your shoe set-up. Stand on your in­soles to check your shoes are the right size and your in­soles ac­tu­ally con­tact your arch evenly and of­fer some sup­port. Get the right bar width to help pre­vent shoul­der, neck and hand pain. The bars should be shoul­der-width apart, so your arms run par­al­lel, with straight wrists. Your fit­ter’s ex­pe­ri­ence mat­ters just as much as their equip­ment.“i had a Re­tul bike-fit,” doesn’t in it­self mean very much. If in doubt, go to the In­ter­na­tional Bike Fit In­sti­tute web­site: ibfi-cer­ti­fi­ca­tion.com
