  Hill Climbing 101

You are approaching a hill…

  • ·        You realized that you are in the wrong gear? 
  • ·        Your chain dropped off half way up the hill?
  • ·        You felt you couldn’t cycle up the hill and walked up the hill.
  • ·        Should I be sitting or standing while climbing?

  • ·        What gear is needed when going up a hill.

  • ·        Where to position yourself on your bike when climbing a hill.
