Barbara Bialokoz

Overview

Barbara grew up in Oxford England, a  place where cycling was the transport for all occasions. So becoming interested in first triathlon and then bike racing seemed inevitable.  This lead to an interest in physiology and the science of human movement and what happened when injuries occurred.  Now living in Canada’s cycling capital, Victoria BC, she appreciates the ultimate cycling diversity: there is a bike for all seasons and tastes: Commuting, cruising, cyclocross, road racing, triathlon, mountain biking, BMX and track racing. So becoming a physiotherapist who specializes in all things related to cycling seemed like an obvious choice!

“This lifestyle of competitive sport brought me to the beautiful west coast, where I
have been registered with the Physiotherapy Association of British Columbia since 1998. At my private clinic I treat all types of injuries, many due to the fact that
this incredible part of the world has the best outdoor playground enjoyed by folks 1-90+ yrs old. It’s inspiring and awesome to see.
Having my own work studio has allowed me to offer the most comprehensive treatments available to cyclists on Vancouver island.”

David MacLeodAbout Dave

 

It was with an interest in car racing that Dave stumbled into the bike race scene. Looking to go fast around impossible corners at ridiculous speeds, cycling was a cheaper and more viable option in Atlantic Canada than F1. So he began racing road bikes in 1983 and continued until 2004,starting with Canada Games and going on to  win the Provincial and Atlantic Championships numerous times.  participate at the National Road championships and National Track championships.

“During my entire racing career, I was always trying to perfect my bike fit to get the highest performance possible. If only I had the tools and knowledge that is available to us today. Being a perfectionist with my set-up, I have a full understanding what just 2 millimeters in the wrong direction can have on the feel of the bike.”
