Why does a 61 year old, C grade rider, weighing 95 kilos ( that’s ME!!!) find climbing so hard.
Here are a couple of articles that explain the maths of climbing
Then you can proceed to the second article which illustrates the effect of saving weight. I’m thinking for the moment of the amazing effect it had when I swapped my 16kg bike for an 8.5kg bike. So where to find the next 5kgs.??…. Maybe I can get two kilos by moving to a 6.5kg bike, and then work off three kilos. How about that??
This is good for exploring what my old body can do.
