    Track Cycling Tips:
    Increase your Leg Speed


    Track Cycling Tips: Increase your Leg Speed

    Not all cyclists can afford a coach, this is why Velodrome Shop provide FREE Track Cycling Coaching tips and advice to all our customers.

    It may sound simple - ‘the faster you pedal, the quicker you ride’, but increasing your cadence (pedalling speed) is not easy.

    A great way to increase your leg speed is by using ‘Under Gear Training’, i.e. training with a gear that is below your usual Race gear.

    Track Cycling Tips: Increase your Leg Speed


    GEARING: If 48x14 (92) is your Race Gear, use 46x14 (88) or even 46x15 (82) for Under Gear Training.

    SESSION: Flying 100 or 150m TTs, same technique as 200m TTs

    ADVANCED: Do it Motor Paced for extra benefit

    TOP TIP: Great if used during your taper period prior to a big event or in a warm-up at the actual event. Also great to try on your Rollers.

    All Track Cyclists require an ability to sprint, be it for Points in a Madison or Points Race, to accelerate at a high speed in a Sprint or even to launch a ‘Chris Hoy’ style Keirin speed endurance attack.
