"My passion for cycling has also been part of my ambition. I understand the joy, the pain, the beauty and community of this great sport and feel fortunate to be able to combine my passions."

Nichola set up Velophysio to provide physiotherapy specifically for cyclists and triathletes. As a cyclist herself she understands the complex nature of the bike, training, biomechanics, and bike fit, and realised this expertise was currently lacking in the field of Physiotherapy outside of the professional teams.
Nichola has helped hundreds of cyclists and triathletes recover from injury and get back on the bike. Offering insight, knowledge, diagnostic skill, a variety of treatments including acupuncture, manual therapy, massage and specific rehabilitation. Riders have gone on to great achievements from riding their first century, completing the Transcontinental race, competing in Kona, to riding around the world.
"Rode my standard Box Hill loop this morning with the temp shims and more thought to position.
Felt more connected and compact on the bike.
Fastest ride of the year, picked up close to a km/per hour despite crappy wet pot holed roads, a ton of traffic and a couple of nights out Thu/Fri."

"The personal service from both Phil and Julian is second to none. They have such a wealth of experience in fitting that they can almost tell at a glance if something is just a little off. It felt as though it didn't matter how long it took to get the best position possible - even for an amateur cyclist like myself. Can't recommend them enough."
"I tried the shorter cranks today and I like them - it feels like it's less stress for the back and it seems easier to ride higher cadence. In the end I had a good Tour with no back problems. Thanks for your help!"
"Thanks very much Phil.
Did an 80 mile sportive yesterday on the road bike - perfect set up thanks; I've never been so comfortable, and no after effects!
"I'm new to cycling so needed some support on finding a bike that would be right for me. Julian couldn't have been kinder or more supportive, he took time to find out what I wanted from my cycling and then looked closely at my physical structure to ensure that the bike is a comfortable fit for me. It really is a 5 star service and far exceeded my expectations."
