Last weekend, Tyler and I went in for a much needed Bike Fitting.
It was a little emotional, with the recent events, but I think it was really good for both of us. 
Thanks to Nate, cycling has become a passion for both of us (something he passed on to tyler, and tyler passed to me). 
It's something we love, and we don't want to give it up.

Tyler had been having some knee problems, and we finally linked it to riding. 
So off to Faster we went! 

It was so neat.
(If you're a cyclist and haven't been in to get fitted, GO. Right Now!!)
They set your bike up on the trainer, and after a series of questions about your riding & health history,  a pedaling you go! There are 2 cameras, one facing you straight on, and one facing you to the side. As you ride, the cameras record you, and then on the big screen the fitter takes different measurements and angles, to see what you're doing right & wrong. From those measurements, they know what to adjust on the bike, or what you as a cyclist need to adjust. 

 We got the 2D fit....they also offer a more advanced 3D fit. 
For more info, click the Faster link above and check out their site! 

Tyler and I learned we both hunch over when we ride and sit too far forward in the saddle, so our fitter gave us some good tips for better form. After a few adjustments to both of our bikes, we were pedaling faster and stronger.

We can't wait to get out on the road, we are excited to keep riding with our new and improved form! :)

As always, thank you for the continued love and support!
