    I was going to do this as a poll but as my use of technology is limited to HR monitors and just about being able to type i shall simply state my question and let all you elaborate on it.

    When climbing hills on a bike (mountain or road) do you seat climb or stand to pedal?

    drop a post i'm very interrested to hear the responses and why!

    cheers

    I think it depends on how Englands bowlers do, as Aussies have some real quality in their batting with Langer, Hayden, Ponting, Gilchrist etc, whereas hopefully some quality bowling will prove to everyone how overrated vaughn is. Man of the series i reckon maybe Brett Lee (if picked), as he was amazing in the one-dayers and is coming to form.

    Depends really on how steep the hill is. The steeper it is the more likely you'll stand. I do tend to stand more than sit.

    Stand up, cuz my weight helps me push down on the pedals, allowing an angle that should lessen my energy consumption

    Road bike; stay seated for as long as possible, ass to the end of the seat, keep cadence high. Drive your ass into the rear of the seat, lean forward. You'll use your glutes aswell as your legs. As soon as your stand, it's the whole side-to-side affair, don't move your body move your bike. Keep your body over the 'power' foot. Remember, just pushing down isn't pedalling, remember the back stroke - you'll be clipped in.

    Mbike; pretty much the same, just don't sit down, keep your elbows in.

    Nah, its' pretty easy, I'd got the hang of getting to my feet and riding the waves by the second day id ever tried it, didnt really need lessons (too expensive lol) just watched other people. But I'd always bodyboarded when i was little, so catching the right waves at the right time came second nature to me when i first did it and the balance wasnt too much of a problem from snowboardin an skateboardin.

    Beginners should get it within a week or so I wouldve thought, and you want to start on a swell board or just a big board, and if you like it and planb on doing it again id reccommend buying a board and a wetsuit, because hiring everytime can get pricey, and you can get 2nd hand/ex-hire wetsuits from about £20. Great sport though if your planning on taking it up.

    18 million I'm sure Arsenal would bid if they could get him.
    Its only if Chelsea offer stupid money like 30million are Arsenal out of the race.
    And between the 2, I'm sure SWP would prefer Arsenal.

    Jenas at 22 should be like Flamini at 17! or even Fabregas!
    Viera is miles ahead of Jenas. Jenas should not even appear on the subs bench for England. What was Becham like at 22?

    22 years is a nice age for football where your young and full of youth. I believe 25 to be the peak more so than the 27 years some people suggest.
    He asked if he could speak to Chelsea today.

    Its a bit of both, stand up to strain some different muscles every now and then, sit down for the majority of the climb, keep the cadence high. Watch the tour de france and see how they climb the hills.

    although on a road bike i find that keeping a high cadance is almost impossible as my legs just hurt when i try to incorperate a back-stroke whilst clipped in.

    i suppose that's just be being not fit enought!!

    and yes i'll try to get somewhere that i can see ITV2 and watch the tour se france!

    When i attack i stand, more power but you tire quicker. Otherwise sit, high cadence.
