Greg Robidoux, P.T., Advanced Instructor
Greg is a Boston based Physical Therapist and a graduate of the University Of Hartford. He has been practicing physical therapy in out-patient orthopedic settings for 13 years.

He has competed in road, TT, cyclocross, and mountain biking locally and as far abroad as Pakistan.
Greg has been working with cyclists performing medical bike fitting and treating cycling related injury for more than 8 years. Seeing the need for comprehensive health care for the cycling population he founded “thecyclingPT”, a cycling centric physical therapy clinic. The mission of “thecyclingPT” has been to provide the best possible care for cyclists, by cyclists, on and off the bike. Greg has worked tirelessly with the community, bike shops and custom bike builders throughout New England, promoting cycling and the importance of bike fit to reduce injury, improve performance, and increased comfort on the bike.
Ian Buchanan, SICI Core Instructor
Ian Buchanan holds degrees in secondary education and small business management and has worked in the cycling industry for fifteen years in both the retail and manufacturing sectors. While working with retailers and consumers from around the country, it became apparent to him that there was substantial interest in specialty bicycle fitting and performance assessment, but not many outlets offering the level of fitting many athletes were requesting. In 2001, Ian and his partner Sarah Shorett opened Fit Werx, a technology and research based fit studio and retailer, located in a town of 2000 people in central Vermont. Fit Werx has since grown into one of Serotta's top 5 dealers and works with riders from around the nation and the world. As a fitter, Ian's credentials include fit instruction for USA Triathlon's national coaching certification, writing Triathlete Magazine's "Tech Support" column six times annually, and providing consumer and professional fitting seminars regularly. He fits over 350 athletes a year ranging from first time riders to Olympians. Athletes Ian has built bikes and positions for include multiple age group winners at the Ironman World Championships in Kona, numerous pro and top amateur road racers (including multiple Collegiate National Champions), as well as Ironman winners and National Champions at the professional level. Ian's fittings focus on stability and biomechanical alignment, rider education and awareness, and viewing each athlete as an individual. He has over ten years of experience with the biomechanics and alignment of the foot and leg in rigid soled footwear based sports and has made well over one thousand pair of sports based footbed support systems for athletes around the nation and the world. Ian has designed over 500 custom bicycles for athletes and consults with many manufacturers regularly regarding new and existing product development.
