- DO NOT SMASH - Have a nice cadence throughout your pedal stroke so you're not over-pedaling and not blowing out your knees. You have gears for a reason - so use them, unless you’re a hearty single speeder!
- Think "perfect circle" - Pedal throughout the whole stroke. Act like you're scraping gum from underneath your cleats and also on the upturn.
- Get fitted - Not only is seat height and saddle position important, but knowing where your cleats should be lined up with your pedal is huge. Your bike shoes also make a big difference on your pedaling. I went through 3 pairs before I found the ones that are a perfect ergonomic fit for my arch and foot placement.
