Liz’s High Cadence Indoor Bike Training Session

Cadence - the cyclist’s pedal rate measured in revolutions per minute (rpm), is one of the two components of power generation on a bicycle, with the other being gear size. The higher your cadence, in a specific gear combination, the greater your power output (i.e., more watts generated on the bike). While you can increase gear size to boost power, there are four key advantages of pedaling at a higher cadence. This article discusses these advantages and gives you an indoor session to help you improve your overall cadence.
