Forward, weight training
Unlike any other riding style, uphill cycling slopes are more inclined to thin people. But this is not to say that when you have a little load (especially non-seasonal) not cycle uphill. No matter what the situation is, cycle uphill the slopes near you. When you lose weight, even as little as three pounds, you will find that your riding performance has improved significantly because you only need to move a smaller weight with the same force.
Use small gear ratio
In my opinion, most people use large gear ratios when riding bicycles. When I cycled uphill Mount Washington for the first time, the 7.6-mile average gradient was 11.6%, and I used the previous gear ratio. The only way I can cycle uphill to the top is to stand and ride all the way, with an average cadence of 55. Now I use a smaller gear ratio, 11-32T flywheel, which allows me to ride and maintain a high-efficiency pedal frequency. After that, the heaviness of tired legs and the accumulation of lactic acid disappeared.
Do less work
When cycling uphill with many drivers, jumping out to be a rabbit may not be rewarding-but you will be surprised to find that hiding behind other people can save a lot of energy. Moreover, as you cycle uphill higher and higher, the wind as an influential factor will become more and more obvious, so that even if you rush out at low speeds, it will be greatly affected. From an aerodynamic point of view, the following riding is psychologically beneficial. Moreover, if you maintain a steady speed and do less work on most uphill cycling sections, you can maintain the strength to sprint to the top.
