Learning To Ride In The Drops

ride 9-11-15

So today was an amazing day for a ride. I decided to push myself and headed north of town up the ridge. I did some great hills and had some great downhills.

I’m trying to get used to riding on the drop handle bars and not staying up on the hoods. It’s challenging as I know it’s good for me to be down on the drops, but I’m still unsteady on them. I talked to my biking friend Joe and he said I should aim to ride at least 15% of the ride in the drops. I’m getting there.

All for now.

Do you use the drops on your handlebars? How did you get used to using them?
