Let us know in the comments 👇 Dan and Simon conduct an experiment, to see if being aerodynamic uphill really does make that much of a difference? Ex-Professional Cyclists Simon Richardson and Dan Lloyd cycle up the same climb twice, Cheddar Gorge in the Mendips region of the UK it is 3.3km in length with an average gradient of 5% The first they cycle up the climb they ride in an upright position and the second time in the most aerodynamic position they are able to hold for the effort.
