Biomechanics of cycling level 1

This first course will serve us to lay the foundations on the basic concepts of biomechanics in general and its application or relationship with cycling. We will know the basic parameters on which to guide us to make decisions in the adjustment, the different support points on cycling and how they are affected by each other.

We will try to connect the different steps of cycling biomechanics and integrate them all into a single protocol to follow during the biomechanical analysis.

Certification in Biomechanics of cycling level 1

This certificate states that the student has passed all the exams and a specific course. The following information is included: student's full name, name of the course and name of the certifying organization.

  • Functional assessment and cleat adjustment

    In this subject we will introduce ourselves in the main tests that are carried out to determine the physical characteristics of a cyclist and their possible relationship with the position on the bike. It will help us to collect information regarding the adjustment of cleats, in which we will see its relationship with the functional assessment and the possible adjustments depending on the type of cyclist and modality that practices.

  • Content

    1. Functional assessment
    2. Most common tests in functional assessment
    3. Basic cleat setting
  • Adjusting the different metrics

    As a continuation of the first subject, in this we will learn to assess the cyclist on the bike and see if their values ​​correspond to a correct placement of the bike's metrics. We will learn the different adjustments that can be made on the bicycle and their peculiarities depending on the cyclist and the modality that they practice.

  • Content

    1. Static methods vs dynamic methods in the biomechanical study
    2. Anatomical reference points in the biomechanical analysis of the cyclist
    3. Basic kinematic evaluation. Reference angles
    4. Frequent annoyances and possible solutions
