I've looked through this Forum and cannot see if anyone has asked the question before...
I'm new to road cycling and have found that I can roll along comfortably at 30kmh (18mph) with a cadence of around 80 -85rpm.
I have read a number of different articles regarding spinning and increasing cadence and wondered should I gear down and increase my cadence to 95+ but obviously keep my speed at the above.
In better words spin faster but stay at the same speed. Will this do anything for my fitness and weight loss?
... .. ( Sorry two questions in one)
Having ridden with two other riders, I have noticed that we all are travelling at the same speed, however we are all in different gears. One is really spinning at 95 -100 and the other is pushing a high gear and just turning over at about 75...??
