Cyclist Injury Assessment and Bike Fitting at NYP is a new service which we are offering for discerning cyclists of all levels. This service is aimed at:
- maximising performance
- maximising comfort
- decreasing pain whilst cycling
Bike fit will include a combination of:
- physiotherapist assessment of the ranges of motion of the cyclist
- strength and flexibility of the cyclist
- measurement of static and dynamic parameters of both the cyclist and/or the bike
Cycling is a form of exercise which should not cause pain. Therefore, most injuries on a bike are caused by trauma. Overuse or static loading injuries are due to poor biomechanics on the bike.
We aim to correct these by addressing both the rider and the bike to find the optimum position that the rider is able to assume to improve comfort, pain and performance.
This service is conducted by Dallas Newton who is an experienced cyclist and student of all things cycling. He has experience of working with many sports people, from the professional to the weekend warrior.

4. Custom Insoles
Fully customised insoles
The foot/pedal is one of only 3 contact points on the bike. Therefore, it is very important for both comfort and performance.
The foot being stable in the shoe is the most important aspect of load transmission. The foot in the shoe has to be in the best position to transfer power to the pedal and therefore the drivetrain.
We offer a variety of options in terms of insoles; both ‘off the shelf’ and custom insoles.
What to wear?
Please bring your bike, cycling kit and cycling shoes and ensure the bike is clean and in good working order.
We will confirm what is needed when booking your appointment.
