I haven't thought about pedaling technique for several years.
However, due to a left hip prone to acute bursitis, and lately somewhat sensitive, I did think about it on today's ride.
I find that if I use the opposite leg to pull up at the same time as I am pushing down with my push leg, it reduces the strain on my hip joint considerably, and, lo and behold, I go considerably faster.
I have gotten into the habit of mashing.
Is 50+ pedaling technique different than <50 technique?
So, what about you?
Do you think about pedaling technique, or is it something you have never considered or thought about? If you do use a technique, what is it? Or do you just hop on and go?
