I'm having problems getting rolling on my road bike.
For some reason I have hard time hopping back into the road bike saddle. It's the pedals spinning causing my feed to lose grip, or the bike tilting on my way up. That's what I've struggled with, and I can't quite figure out why it' so hard for me.
I ride a mountain bike and my feet have no issue hitting the ground and waiting until it's time to go again. That's not the case with the road bike, where I have to get out of the saddle when stopped.
I never had issues with a mountain bike but last year I struggled a lot on the road bike.. not with braking but with the actual complete stop and then starting again. I’m about to get back in the road bike again for the season and am hoping to do better this time. I guess I don’t understand why stopping / starting is so much harder than a mountain bike.
Does anyone have any tips/tricks in starting a road bike?
