The inaugural Harvard cycling medicine course was a success, featuring 6 speakers and 11 lectures, as well as 3 small group practical sessions. Topics covered include the rise of cycling, health and safety considerations, bicycle fit, sports psychology, pelvic pain, overuse injuries, and rehabilitation for the cyclist. 32 participants from all around the world attended. We hope to be able to bring this course back in the future!
Huge thanks to Greg Robidoux, Marilou Shaughnessy, Antje Barreveld, Christine Eng, and Cheri Blauwet for lecturing, as well as Chris Gilbert for his assistance in making this happen!
Here are some photos from our AAPM&R workshop, Cycling Biomechanics and Bike Fit. Thanks again to our awesome volunteers, Tonia Hafner (road), Erich Leas (MTB), Stephanie Mayberg (TT), Audrey Raboin (cyclocross), and Julie Tracy (road).
The BikeHealth.org team put on quite a workshop this weekend at the 2015 American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Annual Assembly. Last year, the idea for a bicycling biomechanics workshop was born through some brainstorming, and we quickly wrote it up and submitted it. One after another, colleagues volunteered to be a part of it, and we wound up with a fantastic team, enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge of cycling mechanics, fit, and injury with a crowd of over 25 participants.
