Discover Cycling Package

This is a great starting point if you are completely new to cycling or you have only been riding for a year or two. We will provide expert guidance and help you customize a plan to help ride at your best.

  • 1-on-1 rideSMART session with a VitessX cycling expert, designed to help you set a personal cycling goal and assess your body, your existing (or future) bike and the interface between the two, and how those three pieces of the puzzle need to come together to enjoy your ride. This 90-min session is a unique on-the-bike assessment that is structured to analyze injury risk, postural patterns, flexibility, strength and muscular imbalance, pedal stroke, bio-mechanical weaknesses and limiters. You do not need to own a bike to conduct this session.
  • 1-on-1 45-min session with a Cleveland Clinic Canada exercise physiologist to review the findings from your rideSMART session, assess your current fitness and create a plan to help you achieve your goal. To keep you on track, your dedicated exercise physiologists will connect you twice over the next month to help you stay on track.

Elevate Your Cycling Package

This is the right choice for you if you have been riding for more than 2 years, if you experience pain or discomfort on your existing bike, or if you simply want to take your performance up a notch.

  • 1-on-1 Fit&Learn session with a VitessX cycling expert. This 3.5-hr session is a unique off and on-the-bike assessment that helps you learn the science behind cycling, and get empowered to do what it takes to elevate your ride experience, and to modify your existing bike set-up to reflect your physiological needs at the time of the session. It includes a cycling-centric musculo-skeletal screening that analyzes systemic injury risk, on and off the bike pain and discomforts, postural and symmetry patterns, foot support and foot/pedal interface, operational ranges of motion, strength and muscular imbalance, pedal stroke, bio-mechanical weaknesses and limiters.
  • 1-on-1 45-min session with a Cleveland Clinic Canada exercise physiologist to review the findings from your Fit&Learn session, assess your current fitness and create a plan to help you achieve your goal. To keep you on track, your dedicated exercise physiologists will connect you twice over the next month to help you stay on track.

Don’t have a bike? Don’t worry.

VitessX has created a unique fit-to-order bike rental program for Cleveland Clinic Canada patients. This program is designed for people who want to experience the cycling lifestyle but aren’t ready to invest in a bike. To achieve your goals, we want to make sure that you have the right equipment at a reasonable price. You get to ride this fit-to-order bike for 6 months. At the end of the rental term, you have the option to buy it, or return it. The cost is $199 per month; which is significantly less than the rental fee for an unfitted, used bike from a local bike shop.

Exclusive Access to a Community of Riders

An exclusive benefit for Executive Health patients is that you will also receive a VitessX affinity membership when you purchase a cycling package. This provides you with access to a community of like-minded cyclists, plus entry to VitessX private events, workshops, mini-clinics & rides and a dedicated cycling concierge to enhance your cycling experience.
