Article originally published on Cycling Tips describing the pedalling techniques of “Ankling”. It is a technique that I have found to be beneficial, especially when climbing with a slower cadence. The act of dropping the heel down and pushing across the top of the pedal stroke help eliminate a dead spot that can occur when you’re pedals are at 12 o’clock and 6’ o’clock.

The ankle technique basically boils down to dropping the heel over the top of the pedal stroke and scrapping dog poo off your shoe at the bottom of the stroke.
