The intro music to this video has become my alarm clock tone
Neither my legs nor my lungs will allow me to tackle even the softest gradient these days... Take my hat off to the climbers in the tours who tackle these climbs and the guys who haul their bodies over the mountains in their wake.....

your climbing was no where near 90 rpm
Very smooth technique when out of saddle, I hope to mimic that one day!

The hardest thing for me was to get my cadence up to 85-90 going uphill. I do stay on my seat off and on but chose to get up during a turn/apex-bend. I find this very helpful. I think the biggest thing for me is to stay as relaxed as much as possible. Your body and bike will thank you for it!
