I have found that poor pedaling caused a ache in my knee. When I started riding I would mash the heck out of the pedal not to mention that my seat was to low. That coupled with Georgiaís hilly terrain it was a problem. It baffled me my knee would hurt every time I got on the bike. I thought I really messed it up and a sport which I have come to love I would have to let go. Now that I have increased cadence and went easy on the down stroke I have better endurance and the ache has gone away. I have learned that I canít go 60 miles mashing my pedals.
Anyone have techniques to go from mashing to a good pedal technique? I feel I have lost some speed is there a middle ground.
