Great Article on Climbing

This is a very good article from the Prudential RideLondon organisers about how to improve climbing – which seems to be great timing given that there are indeed a few undulations in Northern Ireland!

The key message in the article is about power-to-weight ratio – whilst there is an element of technique that can be improved, getting up the hills faster is essentially about increasing the power or reducing the weight.

So, cut all that hair, trim those finger and toe nails, get rid of that heavy old earwax, pluck those eyebrows, scrape those underfeet with the pummice stone!

It all helps!!
