Cycling Glossary - Word of the Day

OTB

1. Short for, "over the bars," as in crashing in such a way that you go flying over the handlebars Superman-style. 2. And, also short for, "off the back," which means being dropped by the group.

Joe's Daily Cycling Tip

Shifting For The Hills – The best way to shift for climbing (assuming that the hill is challenging, not a short one you can roll right over) is to start in a gear that feels almost too easy and find a nice pedaling rhythm that gets you about half way up the hill. Usually, you will start to “warm-up” to the hill at this point and feel okay because the gear is actually a little bit too easy. At this point, you should shift into a slightly harder gear and see how it feels. This allows using different muscles while covering more ground with each pedal stroke. Depending on the hill, you might find that you can shift several times and actually accelerate over the top of the hill, a great feeling!
