    “For the most part, the higher the intensity and/or speed, the higher your cadence should be. The big reason for this higher cadence is that it stresses the aerobic component more. A higher cadence engages slow twitch (Type I) muscle fibers, which are the oxidative fibers, thus saving your powerful and fast twitch (Type II) muscle fibers for when you need them- sprinting, attacking, climbing, surging.”

    Doesn’t that contradict itself? When you are sprinting, attacking, climbing, and surging the speed and/or intensity are higher.

      Not really!
      High Speed = Higher Cadence. But it doesn’t mean that it’s going to be an easy gear.
      High Cadence = More aerobic intensity
      Low Cadence = More anaerobic intensity
      When you sprint, attack, or surge you use more of your fast twitch muscle fibers so you’re burning more fuel in anaerobic method. But climbing or riding steady state you would want to burn more aerobic fuel so you do an easier gear with high cadence.

        Re-read my article and the comment. It says a higher cadence engages Type 1 while you need Type 2 for sprinting, attacking, climbing, and surging. So when intensity is high, you’re using the Type 2, which according to the statement is used at a lower cadence.

          The intensity changes at a higher cadence at higher speeds on level ground or an even slope angle. Climbing is different in that at times it is less intense at a higher cadence. Forget “twitch” and think “level of effort.”
          If I’m riding on a flat surface without any resistance (no wind, fresh legs, etc.) at 35 mph, I might be peddling at a cadence of 95 or maybe 110 rpm. The higher cadence will be “easier” because I’m in a smaller (easier) gear. At 95 rpm at 35 mph (same conditions) I am in a bigger (more difficult) gear and am using more anaerobic flow.

          • Alex

            I’m not arguing against that. As I JUST stated, re-read my comment.

            Not to mention recent studies point to self-selected cadence being the most efficient.

            • ROBObot

              If you can’t figure out what your ideal cadence is, Alex, I suggest pedaling a lot more and then…even more. Hopefully, you’ll get a grip on the nature of things.

                I did 9k miles with 700k ft of climbing. I think I’ve had a few miles in to figure things out thanks.
