How do you train for steep Uphill Switchbacks

Post by john martin on Fri May 15, 2009 11:25 am

I would like to know how to negotiate a steep uphill switchback similar to the singletrack trail in the 09 TLBF. Honestly, for me, I just dismount and walk.

Anyway, your 2 cents will be appreciated. thanks.

for me....sometimes this "dismount and walk" is more effecient than push yourself to ride a steep uphill switchback para lang hindi mag lactic ung legs mo. Pero if you done it before and you think you can make in then mas maganda.

"How do you train for steep Uphill Switchbacks"

Find a steep uphill with switchbacks and train on it! Very Happy J/K

Seriously though, when you say "training", are you talking about technique or endurance?

If it's technique, then the video is perfect and practice on any steep hill that has a steep driveway and perhaps even draw a switchback with some chalk then practice. Better yet, find just one nice switchback on your favorite training hill and just practice over and over again. That's what I did.

If it's endurance...well, just keep climbing hills.

akyat ka ng baguio

we have a variety of switchbacks here to whet your appetite

ride with someone who has a camera

with that fact in mind, you will try not to dismount and walk on the switchback
