Bike fit expert Paraic McGlynn will be at Full Gas Bikes at Fox Valley, on Saturday, along with world-renowned aerodynamicist and frame designer Kevin Quan.

Fox Valle is one of the host locations for the 2017 Tour de Yorkshire and is in the heart of some of the best cycling routes in the region.

Store owner Tony Gibb, himself a 17-time national champion and world master’s champion, said, “We’ve all experienced a ride that has put us off riding the bike for a few days, and more often than not it comes down to your overall position on the bike or a bike that’s simply the wrong size for you.

“There is so little knowledge about how the body works with the bicycle, and that’s why, when we heard Paraic and Kevin were in the UK, we were really keen to have them come and see us.”

Paraic said: “I think it’s great that a bike shop would be interested enough in their customers and local club riders to organise an educational discussion with Kevin and myself.”

The event will kick off at 7pm.
