I've been riding now for about 3 years, just recently getting back into the sport. I enjoy climbing hills and have been working on getting better. Currently, at the end of my ride I climb a small hill 2mi at a 4% grade at 10mph with a cadence of about 80 - 85. I'm trying to slowly lose weight (at 175 and would like to get down to 160) so that's already taken care of. Outside of that tho, should I concentrate more on increasing my aerobic capacity or increase my leg strength to push a bigger gear at same cadence? Which would give more bang of the buck so to speak? If that's the case what type of workouts would you suggest?
