Injury Prevention Strategies for Cyclistsblank

This webinar will briefly discuss the epidemiology of non-traumatic cycling-related injuries and outline some of the most common injuries. We will introduce strategies to prevent cycling-related injuries with a focus on training load management and defining the differences between mechanical and physiological stress. Finally we will present some specific strategies to prevent cycling-related injuries to the lumbar spine, knee, cervical spine and hand.



Michael has 26 years of clinical experience having worked in Australia, the UK, Hong Kong and now Singapore. He holds a Masters Degree from the University of Western Australia and is an Australian Physiotherapy Association Titled Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist. Michael has achieved his Diploma in Sports Physical Therapy from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and holds a Level 1 Australian Strength and Conditioning coaches’ certificate.

The Foot-Shoe-Pedal Interface in Cycling blank

A cyclist can average up to 5700 pedal revolutions in an hour. The interaction between the lower limb, foot-shoe-pedal interface requires careful consideration if one is attempting to minimise injury, and maximise performance during cycling. This presentation will provide an overview of the different modalities and their mechanisms used to modify this important interface, so as to meet these goals. It will also touch on ongoing yet-to-be published research work by the presenter, which summarises the current available evidence on the topic.



Boon Kiak is an avid cyclist and podiatrist, as well as a big lover of all things sports. His most recent position was Head of Podiatry and Senior Podiatrist of Woodlands Health. He was nested at KTPH and was the lead of the Sports Podiatry service, after spearheading its set up.

As an athlete himself, his clinical interests are in podiatric sports medicine and injuries, and biomechanical abnormalities of the foot and ankle. He is currently training full-time and preparing to represent Singapore at the 2022 SEA Games in Hanoi, before starting his position as Principal Podiatrist at Core Concepts from June.

Mr. Timothy Lim
Head Bikefitter & Engineer, Loue Bicycles

Role of Bikefit in Preventing Cycling Injuriesblank

The webinar will discuss the role of bikefit in preventing cycling injuries. Bikefitting involves a thorough dynamic biomechanics analysis of a cyclist to improve comfort, efficiency, power, and more importantly injury prevention. We will discuss how bikefit can improve quality of overall cycling movement, stability, unwanted compensation movement, and how a positive outcome may be validated.



Timothy has been a bikefitter for 12 years and is accredited as a Level 4 Bikefitter by the International Bike Fitting Institute (IBFI). In 2013, he established Loue Bicycles, a bikefitting lab focusing on providing bikefitting services and education for aspiring fitters in the region. Loue Bicycles has been collaborating with research institutes like NTU and RP to conduct research on cycling biomechanics as well as the development of tools for cycling biomechanics analysis. Timothy holds a B.Eng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering. He was a national cyclist from 2009 to 2013 and raced with the OCBC Singapore Continental Cycling team. Now an avid Ironman triathlete, he enjoys traveling to races with his wife and 3 children.
