Watch your knees
“I tend to see a lot of cyclists pedaling with their knees going out rather than straight forward, and that not only wastes energy, but the movement can put a lot of stress on the joint and cause overuse injury,” says Dow. “For more power and to prevent pain, you want your knee to be going straight up and down rather than in and out or sideways.” Getting a professional bike fit can help you determine if your knees are tracking correctly to help improve your pedaling efficiency.
