Chocolate foot pulling?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Chocolate foot pulling?

Have you noticed which of your legs do more work when you stand up and climb?

For me, I realized on a long climb - my right calf was wearing out before my left. I don't "pull" up with the left ankle with as much pronounced effect than my right. When I tried to co-ordinate the "pulling" with my left, I couldn't - realizing I have some practicing to do.

Anyone else have this tendency?

i notice it pretty often, not just when standing and climbing. I sometimes wonder if one of my legs is a hair longer than the other.
