I’ve been trying to get the hang of climbing out of the saddle for the last few weeks. Not that I’ve ever been any good at climbing but I don’t seem to be able to crack finding a nice rhythm.
My main problem is finding a steady cadence and level of effort. Is that the lack of an even gradient or just me not knowing how to pedal up hills properly? I find that I end up spinning up ever faster and then getting out of breath rather than hitting a sweetspot and riding at that pace.
I know that out of the saddle is more demanding on the body and that it’s not something you can do all the way up a hill, but it feels like I should be able to do it. Anyone got any advice or technique pointers to help me figure this one out?
