by Ainslie MacEachran and Hugh MacEachran.

Flexibility is an element that often goes overlooked for a cyclist. Because of the position of the cyclist over a significant number of hours and because it’s a highly repetitious activity, it’s important to maintain a healthy level of flexibility as regards the musculature and tendons. This 9 minute video demonstrates stretches that are low risk but highly beneficial for the cyclist. Stretching is often over-looked in a training plan but has huge effects on the athlete sitting on the bike. A complementary PDF booklet is included.
