So I am one who fails at riding up hills. Lately though I have been able to keep a steady pace of 11mph going on an incline any be it a small or large one.
This helps me...Your favorite song or at least one of them if you have more than one; Sing it while traversing up!
And if you cant multitask then sing it in your head! Seriously you will be up that incline in no time!
I tried this the past few times and it helped me forgot about the burning in my legs and how out of breath i was! Somehow it helped me go a little bit faster too. Try it and lemme know if it works!
