I'm realizing I don't actually know how to ride a bike. Things were so much easier as a kid.
The short story is I pedal/coast/pedal .
Since nothing is actually my fault I blame it on my bike. It seems I'm either accelerating or coasting, I'm unable to hold a pace. It goes like this:
Think about cadence as I tend to be on the low side
Bike accelerates (this darn bike is fast)
Need higher gear to keep up with bike . At this point I either shift up or coast
If I shifted I think about cadence
Now I'm tired so I coast and the cycle starts over
Geez, I could never ride in a group like this.
How do you guys handle this?
