Fit Clinic - November 20 Knee Pain 

Do you experience knee pain when riding? Knee pain is one of the most frequent complaints among cyclists. Riding an ill-fitted bicycle will dramatically increase your chances of developing cycling knee pain. As a cyclist you spend a lot of time on your bike, and you also repeat the pedaling motion several thousand times per hour. Making sure your bike fits your individual anatomy will go a long way in ensuring a pain-free adventure on the road. Join our Bike Fit experts on November 20 as they address the most common (and a few uncommon) causes of cycling knee pain and tips for preventing them.
