Todays tip is about fighting your bike.
This tip came up the other day when I was out on a ride on my local roads.
I was riding along at spinning in an easy gear and came upon another rider. From a distance I could see him swerving all over the road. As I got closer I could see him engaging every muscle in his body and twisting the bike all over the place.
There is another much more pleasant way to ride that is also a lot more efficient.
I call it finessing the bike
- What cadence has to to with it
- How you grip the bars is important
- How you can stop fighting and start working with your bike.
