In general, I learn from “feel”. For example, I learned how bicycle gears work by feeling the results (good and bad) and experimenting with different techniques. As a new rider, had I read “How Do Gears Work” by Jason Schisler, Director of Coaching for Vison Quest Coaching, I probably would have yawned and stopped reading at about paragraph three.
David, on the other hand, loves this sort of technically descriptive writing. And, those of you who ride with us know that he loves to teach. He can read an article, learn something new, and begin teaching it to other immediately.
Now that I have more experience, especially with using a power meter, this article really speaks to me. It’s a great explanation of how gears work and an introduction into making your gearing work efficiently for you and your riding conditions. Take a moment to read the article and see tell me what you think.
Now, it’s time to get out and ride before the rain moves in again.
