Cadence sen­sor

To op­ti­mise cadence with power or heart rate, get your­self a cadence sen­sor. Over time, you’ll be able to mon­i­tor your strength gains by see­ing the cadence/power or heart rate com­bined.

Nu­tri­tion

Make sure you take on plenty of flu­ids and carbs. It’s not just fu­elling for the ride, but also the rides in the com­ing days. A good rule is 70- 80g of carbs per hour through gel or solid form.

kit

Get prop­erly kit­ted up with a de­cent set of gloves and over­shoes. While you’ll get warm climb­ing, on the des­cent it’s re­ally im­por­tant you keep warm so you’re ready to hit the next ef­fort.
