March can be a cruel month for cyclists in the Northeast. It’s imperative that you spend quality time on the bike but often times the weather is extremely inhospitable. That translates into long trainer sessions, or wrapping yourself up in so much hi-tech fabric that it’s amazing you can move, never mind pedal. But, the glories of spring are right around the corner so out we go.
Throughout March stay seated on the hills, even if it means coming off the back of the group. Seated climbing is an excellent way to build power and early season is the time to start.
