How to Physically Prepare for a Bicycle Trip

mercoledì, 5 Giugno, 2024

Omar Gatti, an expert from Bikeitalia, will be at BAM to explain how to prepare for a trip and how to deal with pain and discomfort in the saddle.

On the occasion of BAM 2024, on Friday, June 7th at 8:00 PM, the Bikeitalia team will present a session focused on athletic preparation for trails. Omar Gatti, cycling health specialist at Bikeitalia and doctor of sports science, will draw from his extensive experience training many bike travelers who tackle trails to provide easily implementable guidelines to help you reach your next pedal adventure in the best possible shape. The session will cover how much and how to ride, how to manage nutrition, and how to complement training with stretching and bodyweight strength exercises to build a body capable of withstanding even the most challenging trails.

Since achieving the best possible shape also means riding without pain, Bikeitalia is pleased to offer all BAM 2024 participants a training course on proper saddle positioning. The course will demonstrate the procedures to find the correct setup on your bike, based on a protocol tested on more than 3000 cyclists. The course costs €49, but by accessing this link: https://corsi.bikeitalia.it/corso/il-corretto-posizionamento-in-sella/, adding the course to your cart, and using the promotional code “BAM24,” you can get it for free. The discount code expires on June 15th.
