Cycling Tip #3 - Don't Pedal In High Gear for Long Periods

Pedaling in high gear for extended periods can increase the pressure on your knees and lead to overuse injuries such as biker's knee.

Shift to lower gears and faster revolutions to get more exercise with less stress on your knees. The best cadence for most cyclists is 60 to 80 revolutions per minute (rpm), though racers pedal in the range of 80 to 100 rpm.
