Bike Training Tip – Efficient Pedaling
Bike pedal cadence is directly related to which gear you select. Selecting a gear that results in a cadence of 80 to 90 rpm is optimal for triathletes since it results in less muscle fatigue and less stress on the cardiovascular system compared to pushing a harder gear at a lower rpm. Get comfortable pedaling with a cadence of 80 to 90 rpm range on flat terrain or on an indoor trainer.
