Ask The Man: Should I Stay Seated or Stand Up When I’m Riding Up A Hill On My Tri Bike?

There should be a combination of both seated and standing when climbing.  I do not have a steadfast formula on how much you should do of each. There are several variables that affect climbing on your bike including the gradient of the hills as well as the muscle physiology and biomechanics of each individual. With practice you can develop your own rhythm of how to stand and sit while climbing on the bike.

Ask The Man: Help! I Have Achilles Tendonitis from Cycling

I am a 31-year-old road cyclist that rides about 5,000 miles a year. Unfortunately, I have never taken stretching seriously and also realized and my lack of stretching was also compounded by some new shoes with improper cleat placement. After some long, hard rides I've developed some bad Achilles tendinitis in my left leg. I am training for a trip to the dolomites end of June and trying to understand the balance of rest versus training. Do you have any suggestions?
