You can improve your climbing in two ways. Getting fitter and lighter is the painful way, and comes with guaranteed results. There is another way, though. Work on your technique. By improving your pacing and technique on the bike you’ll conserve energy be able to press on as you near the top of the climb. Essentially, you maximise your use of your existing climbing ability by wasting less energy and by distributing your effort evenly over the climb.

  1. Talking to you all who feel like you can't change your life around…I was like that for a long time, but I succeeded in changing my life by 180 degrees and now I am a 100% happier person than I was before. The one thing that really helped me was Forwago because it made me change the way I think and look at everything.

  2. i always start with light gears because the first 4km are the hardest then after that i can go up some gears and i can keep up a good rythme

  3. makishima has a unique way of climbing hahahaha

  4. And all so is very important
    is control your self 😉

  5. I do this but my Exhaustion Is still the same

  6. Thanks to this useful tips I improved my climbing from one to another session. On a 25km climb to 1366 meters I improved my time with an amazing 21 minutes. I’m Looking forward to improve more next time. Thanks for this useful video guys! Greetings from Tenerife!

  7. And not talk too much when climbing up steep road…

  8. You boys may be pros and whatnot… but y'all aren't climbing hills on fixies. Post some tips on THAT, why don't you? 😉

  9. High cadence is my tip. My pedaling style is a lot like Froome's and it does look silly but it is very effective especially if you are trying to stick in someone's wheel who is attacking.

  10. Im safe to say 700 thousand ppl subbed after me hahahshahahahahahahhss

  11. Im a sprinter can you please make a video about climbing tecniques for sprinters like me

  12. I'm a lot heavier than average cyclist…

    So I'm attacking hill climbing simultaneously on several fronts:

    a. technique
    b. getting fitter & lighter
    c. practice, practice, practice

    There are tons of hills where I live, some are listed as worst / most difficult in our country…

  13. Cadence and power is all you need, spin it to win it, grind it you'll get dropped

  14. hello GCN , first of all i want to thank you for useful videos and topics you chose it , and i have a question , i'm 31 years old and i start cycling before 2 years ago , and recently start training on my bike hard , but i have some concerns and doubts about my muscle and body because i start cycling too late can i be professional cyclist and improve my muscle and body for cycling , and what the suitable age to start cycling to be professional .
