Every cyclist wants to become a better climber; have you ever heard a single rider say, “If only I went uphill a little slower?”
If you live in a hilly area the solution is relatively simple – get out and climb those hills. Of course, it’s not as easy as that, but if you live near climbs, you’re able to train specifically on the type of terrain on which you want to improve.
