So this weekend I rode up a storm. 30 miles Fri, 62 on Sat and 30 on sunday. I discovered that when I want to catch up to the group and go like a banshee...I just shift into a harder gear...and let go of my hands and sit up. Then man can I pedal. I think it makes me have to use the entire pedal stroke in order to balance. So I am getting use of my full leg?? Not sure - am tempted to go get a super duper fitting to figure this out....
EVen if I do not go i to a hrader gear - in the same gear I am about 2-3 MPH faster no handed.
Man can i ride no handed.
