"I am an avid
recreational cyclist, with aspirations of becoming
a more accomplished weekend warrior typical of
any male suffering from an age 40 mid-life crisis.
I had been suffering for quite some time from
a very sensitive and tight hamstring and ischial
tuberosity (Sit Bone), which would get worse with
long rides in the saddle.
I contacted Mary at Bike2Body in the hopes that
looking at my bike biomechanics might help the
situation, as I had tried every other possible
route. Mary was able to accommodate me almost
immediately and spent a long time listening to
me moan and complain about all of my problems.
Mary is very professional and never let me feel
like she was trying to make my body fit into some
kind of pre-programmed formula. She spent a lot
more time examining my body and correcting my
posture on my bike than I had initially thought
would be needed. Further to that she also looked
at positioning me on the bike based on questions
she had asked, measurements she had taken and
flexibility tests she had administered.
My new position has helped my riding immensely.
I don't feel the hamstring pain anywhere near
what I used to, and the rolling of the pelvis
has helped on top of that. I've since recommended
that two of my friends go to see her, and would
recommend anyone who is looking to alleviate any
bike related pains or to improve performance to
