am a competitive mountain biker who spends a lot of time training on a
road bike. Last winter I began training for my first 24 hour solo
mountain bike event on my trainer at home. I was putting in longer
hours than I normally had in the past when I started experiencing pain
in my left knee. I was recommended to see Mary about getting a proper
bike fit done, something I had never thought of before. I am an
experience cyclist and I thought I knew it all. After a thorough
interview, an examination of my flexibility, range of motion and
posture, Mary was very meticulous in making small adjustments to the
bike while observing my riding position. Not only did she help correct
my posture, she also gave me instruction on proper riding position.
real test of whether the bike fit helped or not came in March when I
was able to get on my road bike and do some long hours in the saddle. I
was surprised to find that I had absolutely no more pain in my knee.
What surprised me more was how my overall body was much more
comfortable on the bike – my hands were not becoming numb and my neck
and back were not tense and sore after a 5 - 6 hour ride. I really
appreciated Mary following up the assessment with me to see how things
have no apprehension at all in recommending Mary to others. In fact,
many of my riding friends have gone to Mary and have had the same
positive experience that I had. Cheers Mary!"
