Riding rhythm: As the terrain changes during riding, you need to change gears to maintain a stable rhythm. In most cases, pedaling at a speed of 80 to 100 revolutions per minute (rpm) is usually the most effective. When you turn the pedal at a faster or slower tempo, you will tire quickly. If you find it difficult to pedal at an average tempo, you may be riding too high-just shift to a lower gear. This is also true when you step too fast or encounter no resistance-it’s time to switch to a harder gear.
