Cause and Effect is an educational profile, designed to help students discover the important relationship between cadence and resistance, and the impact it has on their heart rate, perceived exertion, muscular strain, and breathing. This class may prove to be a breakthrough of understanding for some of your students, especially those who tend to ride with too little or even too much resistance. It will help them learn to connect better with their own pedaling, and realize how important good pedaling technique is on their output.
There is a lot of dialogue in this profile. You may or may not need to use all of it. Tailor how much you say to the knowledge and skills your students already have. After teaching this to them once or twice, any subsequent times you will not need to say much at all. You will see in the document that I suggest following this up in the weeks afterward with two other cadence-oriented profiles, one focusing more on the slower cadences (climbing) and one on faster cadences, allowing them longer periods at each cadence.
Please tell us how you enjoyed this profile and what your experience was teaching it to your students.
