12 tips for better cycling: Tip 10 – Get in gear

Tip 10 – Get in gear

Don’t just pedal in high gear for long periods; this can increase pressure on your knees.

Shift to the lower gears and faster revolutions to get more exercise with less stress on your knees.

The best cadence for most cyclists is 60 to 80 revolutions per minute (rpm), though bicycle racers pedal in the range of 80 to 100 rpm.
