Ted’s Tips: Spin it, to win it

Ted’s Tips: Spin it, to win it

Posted: April 19th, 2017


Probably 90% of the time I see people lumbering around in an all too massive gear. Your efficiency will skyrocket if you start pedaling north of 85rpm, as opposed to 50-60rpm which I see painfully too often. Drop a gear, increase those pedal strokes, and think of yourself like a hummingbird flying up a mountain. Napa has some steep climbs; entering this into your typical riding format will make them pass like a breezeā€¦ or at least slightly less painfully.
