They say that it never gets easy, you only get faster. Very true when it comes to hills.
Hills are a great way to test your strength as a cyclist. Some love them, many hate them, but as cyclist we all want to getting better at them.
Here are 5 tips that could help improve your hill climbing!
The most important one is to climb hills and put out a steady, but hard pace to get to the top. Be prepared to suffer!
Practice interval training. By doing intervals outside or on the indoor trainer set by a coach you become stronger to tackle the hills.
Ensure you are selecting the correct gears and cadence for the climb.
Breath deeply. Don't panic and breath deep, and depending on the gradient, push hard and get into a rhythm.
Ride with a group. Find a group to ride with, and try and try and keep up with those faster than you.
