More about your course instructor:

Bryan McCullough is a Specialist Cycling Physiotherapist, having worked in musculoskeletal medicine for nearly 20 years. In 2012 he completed his Masters in Sports Medicine where his research project focused on injury patterns in triathletes. Since then Bryan has worked in leading sports medicine clinics in London as both a physio and bike fitter while also lecturing on the topic at the Master’s level.

Bryan’s passion for focusing further on the cycling community led him to set up The Bike The Body, a clinic focused on cycling-specific physiotherapy and clinical cycling analysis (physio-led bike fitting).

During this time Bryan has worked with cyclists of all abilities from new riders up to seasoned club riders, professionals, and ultra-endurance athletes. Bryan has also been featured in many cycling publications such as Cycling Plus, Cycling Weekly, Road.cc, and presented videos with GCN.

His clinic is based just outside Bath in the UK and when he is not in the clinic he is most likely out riding his bike!

You can follow him through his socials on @thebikethebody and visit Bryan’s website HERE.
