Weekend Rides: Aug 6 & 7, 2016

Join the VeloConcepts crew this weekend.  We will be hosting rides on both Saturday and Sunday.  These are going to be great rides, with food and even a bike maintenance clinic on Sunday.  Come join us.

Coffee + Bikes Ride – Saturday, August 6th

Join Culpeper Cycling from VeloConcepts for a road ride this Saturday, August 6th.  Since we are now in the summer doldrums, this ride will be starting at 8:30 am to “beat the heat”.  These rides vary in length, but we generally we try to ride 2 hours or more.

About Our Ride

Our pace is conversational and we will try to wait for everyone. The group averages around 16-18 mph, so please understand your abilities.  Additionally we can provide cue sheets and GPS downloads so you don’t get lost.

The ride leaves  the VeloConcepts parking lot at 8:30 am on a rolling loop.  But be sure to show up early, as the VeloConcepts crew provides breakfast pastries, espresso & cappuccino’s! And don’t forget about our monthly First Sunday Ride, happening this weekend as well.

Sunday’s First Ride & Clinic – Sunday, August 7th

Join the local Culpeper Cycling crew on  Sunday, August 7th for a social road ride from VeloConcepts.   This week’s ride features a varied route around Culpeper.

The ride leaves  the VeloConcepts parking lot at 11 am on a rolling loop.  But be sure to show up early because before the ride starts, the VeloConcepts crew will be providing breakfast pastries, espresso & cappuccino’s.

Post Ride Bike Maintenance Clinic

After the ride everyone is invited to stick around for some pizza and beer while we host a bike cleaning and maintenance clinic.  The VeloConcepts staff will demonstrate the proper way to clean and maintain your bike, the tools and products we use.

Make sure  your bike is dirty, because we will be picking the dirtiest bike to demonstrate the process.

The World's Most Advanced Fit

With the computer controlled fit unit we can quickly and dynamically change your fit as you ride. Want a 5mm lower saddle? How about a 10mm longer stem? Those changes are made via the computer controlled fit bike through its use of small motors that actively raise/lower and lengthen/shorten the touch points. These changes allow us to monitor your fit in real time and provides immediate feedback. Once dialed in we can then use “saved” fits to easily switch back and forth between “fits”.

The DFU is also paired with a smart trainer which applies a consistent resistance and allows us to monitor your effort via heart rate and pedal cadence. This allows us a fit that not only improves comfort on the bike but power output as well.

The gebioMized pressure mapping is part of our next level of analysis services. This diagnostic tool does much more than map saddle pressure, it is our window into your fit on the bike. Through use of this tool the fit professional receives an unprecedented amount of information on the complete interaction between the cyclist and the bicycle. Pressure analysis can assist with resolving saddle pain, low back pain, hand discomfort and many other fit related problems.

By analyzing a cyclists pressure "profile" the fitter can determine where you sit on the bike and make adjustments to your position, by moving you over the bike or the saddle underneath you. The result is a purely custom fit with a tool that provides quantitative feedback.

Our fit center uses the latest fitting tools to achieve an optimal fit. But how do you quantify those measurements? The answer is motion capture. The combination of high-quality motion capture systems with a good fit bike is where the magic really happens. Now the rider can be moving under real-world resistance levels and the effect of the effort on the position can be accurately measured.

Our motion capture system leverages a high speed 4K UHD camera and the software allows measurement tools to be overlaid on the videos to quantify motion. Videos can be taken from any angle, so assessment from the front, back, top and side of rider can be made simply by moving the camera.
