BMT have teamed up with Hollard Insurance so that we can also help look after you and your bike even when it’s racked to ride, being ridden or asleep in your garage. Hollard’s Cyclesure package for bike, accident and trip insurance is designed for all cycling enthusiasts, whether you are a recreational or professional cyclist. Get in touch with them to find out more about their range of products to see which ones fit your profile to make sure you are fully covered in the event of loss, accident or theft.
Getting your riding position right with the correct bike geometry and set-up is essential and will not only make your steed a joy to ride but will help avoid cycling injuries that may occur due to unnatural usage and stress.
Let our bike-fit guru Guy Smith and in-house Biokineticist Luan Smit take you under their guidance with a bicycle fitment and pedaling assessment using our SRM indoor trainer. A 45 minute session will involve Guy adjusting and measuring so you have your setup spot on and Luan monitoring stroke to help with power and efficiency as well as injury prevention and recovery. A full report of your session is provided with areas of focus and and strengthening exercises.
The SRM system is an amazing tool as you can also ride any route in the world as long as you have the GPX file – something triathlete pros Vicky van der Merwe, Mari Rabie use to familiarise themselves with race courses and Rio 2016. Matt Lombardi has also been known to pop his head in now and again for a play on an XCO track.
