So I've been back out on the bike for the last few weeks, cycling everywhere around and about. I've also been doing a circuit each day, it's not long about 6 miles which requires me to cycle up a hill for two miles that gets steeper as you climb. Did the circuit twice this morning in just over an hour.
The hill is a killer when I haven't been cycling and so I use it to get fitter. Question is, how should you cycle hills?
When it gets to the point where my legs start to burn I ease off into a very easy gear and trundle up. I dear say I could walk it quicker. Is this right? Or should I be standing and giving IT max until I'm gasping for air?
How should you tackle hills?
