Cycling

How important is your cycling posture? Did you know that maintaining proper cycling posture is not only important to your efficiency but will also prevent injuries?

Posture and movement are based on patterns of muscle activation and deactivation. Cycling posture provides continuous feedback to the systems of the body altering their normal physiological and anatomical capabilities; ultimately producing adaptive changes in muscle length-tension, faulty joint mechanics, and neuro-mobility deficits.

Here at the OC Launch Pad, we work with many cyclists to help them improve their posture to ensure comfort over longer distances while lessening the risk of unnecessary injuries. Our highly skilled team will work with you to not only feel better but to help increase power, improve balance, making it easier to steer and control your bike.
