Program

Presentation 1

"Prevention and Treatment of common cycling injuries"

Adrian Barei, Sports Physiotherapist

A large proportion of cyclists regularly ride with discomfort or pain. Many will not seek help until their injuries actually prevent them from riding. Knee, back, neck and saddle area pain are relatively common. What are the typical causes and what can be done to tackle these and other unwanted ailments?

Presentation 2

"Fuelling the Engine - The top five things you need to know about nutrition for optimum cycling performance"

Dr Evangeline Mantzioris, Sports Dietician and Nutritionist

How to fuel for your ride, what to do about protein, how important is hydration, do you need electrolytes and which supplements are the critical ones for cyclists with a key focus on healthy, balanced eating to ensure good health? What is the best advice about nutrition for professional cyclists, competitive amateurs and weekend warriors.

Presentation 3

"Sports Science for Cycling - Transferring elite behaviours to your club ride"

Dr Max Nelson, Exercise and Sports Scientist

Feel like a lack of Sport Science knowledge and support is holding you back from achieving more on your bike? This presentation examines the various ways you can incorporate elite Sport Science behaviours into your normal training. Topics covered will include an analysis of the various training types that can benefit cycling performance, long and short-term training plan development, getting the right balance between training and recovery to optimise performance, and recommendations around tapering for competition.

Hi Damien
I prefer for tickets to be pre-purchased as this is a small event with just a few volunteers to help out. Tickets can be purchased on line via the Trybooking system up until a few hours prior to the event.
That said, yes we will accept walk-ins on the night.
Either way hope to see you there!
Cheers, Adrian
