I got this trick off the Internet about ten years ago. Can't remember where, I'm afraid, or I'd credit the source. Imagine that your feet are really hands, and that you're not pedalling, but winding yourself along some kind of rack-and-pinion track. Picture it, feel it, and keep that motion in mind as you pedal.
