CycleFit will be operating Europe's first professionally accredited cycle-fitting course this December. The three-day class will run from December 5th to 7th and will be based in Central London.
The school will be run by CycleFit directors Julian Wall and Philip Cavell. They will be assisted by Dr David Hulse (sports physician to The Tour of Britain) and from the USA Paraic Mcglynn (SICI's director of applied cycling science).
The school is certified and endorsed by SICI - the cycling institute for applied cycling science.
"I am thrilled that Cyclefit is conducting the first and only SICI sanctioned fitting course in the UK. Cyclefit directors, Phil Cavell and Julian Wall have led the retail cycling industry by providing the highest level fitting experience to their clients. We are fortunate that they are willing to share their expertise and ultimately further our mission of optimising the cycling experience through proper fit," said Kathy Krumme, SICI's USA director.
The CycleFit classes are intended for bicycle retail professionals, coaches, physios and medical practitioners interested in cycling.
The SICI Personalised Class is ideal for dealers which want to offer professional bike fit services. Individuals who pass the course and provide documentation of completed training fits receive the SICI/CycleFit Bike Fit Professional certification.
The cost of the course is £1,100 per person. This includes training manual, certificate, one group meal and in-store branding. The cost does not include travel to the course, accommodation or main meals.
A £100 discount is available to any course member that joins SICI
