1. Pace, don’t race: Don’t go charging up a long hill. Keep a steady pace based on your heart rate or power (if you have a power meter). We’ll cover power meters in a future tip.
2. Steady Cadence: Keep your rpm’s steady. Some people recommend 90, but the actually number is really a personal preference.
3. Relax: Keep your upper body relaxed and don’t grip the handle bars too tight. This is just wasted energy.
Here is a short video from GCN called “Climb like a Pro”. It mentions several other good tips.
