Although cycling classes are great, one “not so great” aspect is coming out of a workout with a sore tush or achy joints. Avoid pain and stress during your next cycling class by watching this speedy tutorial with the lovely Cat Kom & Bethany on how to properly set up your stationary bike.
In general, what you’ll learn is that in order to ride pain free:
- Seat Height – Adjust the seat height so that your knees are bent slightly at the bottom of your pedal stroke.
- Fore/Aft Position – Keep your arms a comfortable distance from the handlebars, and your elbows slightly bent.
- Handlebar Height – For your first several rides, start with the handlebars in a relatively high position.
