One of the main attractions of mountain biking is the freedom it gives us to go off-the-beaten path and explore new places. As you become more confident and adventurous in your riding, it’s likely that the trails you ride will include some steep climbing sections, which require a particular technique
In this episode, Andrew explains how to break down the technique for tackling steep climbs, starting with a positive mindset. This is the key to succeeding in your goal of making it to the top. From there, things to focus on include: anticipating what’s coming, body position, weight distribution, gear selection, and smooth pedalling. Andrew describes how to break the climb into segments, rather than looking at it as one long climb, so that you can approach it tactically.
