Pedaling Is About Spinning, Not Stepping - The circular motion of the pedals on your bicycle is a marvel of engineering efficiency but is contrary to how our bodies first learn to move. The motor skills and muscle "memory" we develop in learning to walk encourage us to support our weight with each push of our feet, as if climbing stairs. When we learn to ride a bike, we think of the pedals as rotating steps: pushing down on each one, one at a time, propels us forward. Yet, the best cyclists soon learn they can increase their efficiency, endurance and speed by pedaling through a more complete circle instead of just the front "step". As you pedal, concentrate on using your feet together, with each one mirroring the other in its movement through the circle. Cycling shoes and "floating" cleat-and-pedal systems are essential for taking full advantage of this technique. You'll be amazed, with practice, at how much less effort is required to go farther, faster.
