Hill Climbing Technique 101: Climb Like a Mountain Goat

When the road tilts up, how well do you ride? Do you employ a proper hill climbing strategy that helps you, or one that's inefficient and slows you down? While your power to weight ratio is all-important (losing weight while maintaining or improving output), different hills require varying techniques in order to maximize your performance and "climb like a mountain goat".

In this video that I made several years ago, I go over some fundamental hill climbing techniques that you might find useful.  Give them a shot and let me know if you have any questions on FACEBOOK or TWITTER.   Also, don't forget to put in the time doing hill repeats and hard intervals on the trainer! There are no shortcuts to success.  Good luck and ride safely.
