How do I improve my cadence?
Your cycling cadence is an important factor for an efficient and powerful ride. To improve them, there are some tips you can take into account.
To improve your cadence, you should make sure that you ride at a comfortable cadence. The cadence describes the number of pedal rotations per minute. This should be in a range between 80 and 100 rotations per minute for comfortable driving. If you want to increase your cadence, you can try riding in lower gears and focus on faster leg movement. But make sure not to put too much pressure on the pedals, but rather to complete a smooth movement.
In addition, you should specifically include exercises to strengthen your leg muscles in your training. For example, you can use squats or leg presses to increase your strength and supplement this with training on the bike, at home or in the gym. A strengthened musculature makes it easier for you to maintain a higher cadence in the long term.
A good way to check and improve your cadence is to do indoor training on a spinning bike or roller trainer. Here you can work on your cadence and strengthen your leg muscles. With targeted training, you will notice over time how your cadence improves when cycling on the road.
