As I've been reading this forum, I realize that since I've never ridden with anyone else, I'm apparently doing several things wrong.
My technique in general needs a lot of work, but there's one thing I don't think I can change: I LOVE to coast. I do it as much as I can. I pedal for a while, and then coast until I slow down, then pedal, then coast. It's the payoff for every hill... I never* pedal when I go downhill. I don't like to go especially fast, I like the free ride.
You can stretch, you can sing, you can yodel if you want if it's a nice long downhill. It's like finding free money.
Anyone else feel this way?
