No one wants to be dropped by the group on a hill climb. Understanding cadence will help you make good decisions when shifting, helping you to avoid the dreaded drop.
For instance, if you watch experienced cyclists, you’ll see their feet pedaling at a good, easy rhythm. They understand the relationship of the slope of the road, wind conditions, intensity of the ride and their own fitness level, among other things.
Once you know how all of this works together, the combination of shifting and cadence allows you to minimize muscular fatigue, build aerobic endurance and go faster with less effort.
A general guideline for cadence is 85-100 RPM. But how do you get there? What’s the best way to track it? We have you covered.
