Another cycling junkie is born!Well I have rode by bike a few times now and I am in love with it. I just did my first night ride on rural route highways tonight... did 17 miles total. It was awesome, I plan on doing that a few nights a week
I have to say I am starting to love road biking more than any other type of cycling!
More riding on the hills!Indeed indeed... I went to a state park today here in southern Illinois (Giant City) and rode 40 miles total. I had a lot of fun and have more experience now with cars on hills, around curves and so on... The only thing that got to me was going up hill, the little ones were hard but I switched the the lowest gear on the little front gear and barely made it up but was wore out when I did... The big hills, well I had to get off and push... any tips on making that more easier for me?
Was that the video of the.hill climbs he did.kneedrachen said:Sit and spin man, sit and spin. Mashing a big gear at low cadence is going to burn your legs out faster than spinning at a higher cadence in a lower gear.
Standning up doesn't always help becasue you have to support your body weight as well. Just sit and spin and climb those hills.
Ask Xela about his Ride of The Immortals. . . . . That dood is hard-core!
