Get Off The Couch And Ride! Why You Need A Bike Fit

Get Off The Couch And Ride! Why You Need A Bike Fit – by Guitar Ted

The final video in our “Get Off The Couch And Ride!” series is all about bike fit and why you need one. In this episode, Pat Casey of Peak State Fit walks Salty and Stupid Cycling’s Bobby Kennedy through a bike fit. Meanwhile, Pat shares why a bike fit is not just for racers. Anyone can benefit from being professionally fitted.

If you are in need of a bike fitting and live in the Salt Lake City area, Peak State Fit can help you out, but that’s not all they can do. Pat Casey also does coaching and provides training plans. We’ll let Pat explain here:

Peak State Fit is proud to provide training plans for both the Salty Lizard 100 and Stupid Pony 200! Available for purchase, these training plans are comprehensive, exportable to Zwift, and include strength and conditioning to help riders maintain durability and stay injury free throughout their training. Within each plan includes elements of mindfulness and both physical and mental preparation to prepare for the challenges of long distance endurance racing.

Training plans were created by Coaches Tanner Putt and Patrick Casey. For more information or to purchase your plan, please contact! Each 20 Week Plan costs $129, and can be modified and provided based upon when the athlete chooses to begin.

Riding Gravel would like to thank Pat Casey of Peak State Fit and Bobby Kennedy of Salty and Stupid Cycling for giving us a glimpse into how we can start from nothing and get into shape for any event. Of course, these videos and the series focused on the Stupid Pony and Salty Lizard 100 events, but you can take these same principles and apply them to whatever goal you may have in mind.
