    cadence, man, cadence. the ability to pedal quickly is crucial to your ability to recover after a hard effort.

    WRONG! cadence is not all that important as long as it's between 80- 100 rpm range, and on the hills forget about cadence we all cant pedal like LA.

    Continue to ride! work on higher gears, working on cadence will not improve power output. i would also suggest doing intervals on the climb, that will improve your power output.
