Weight Loss and Cycling Uphill Performance: A Strong Argument
Weight loss is a common goal for many cyclists, and for good reason. Losing weight can improve your cycling performance in a number of ways, including making you faster and more efficient uphill.
I used to really struggle on hills but noticed that climbing hills got significantly easier once I lost about 20 pounds. I felt more powerful overall on my bicycle after my weight loss and can tell when I need to lose weight if I suddenly start gaining weight.
