  1. I need to get off the bike more often. I think there are many times that we can use this approach. I like to use it when we are on longer stretches of road where I can walk around, check form, and motivate them to keep moving. This works on flats and especial climbs when they are beginning to loose form. Intervals are great as well. Like you said, they feel the need to impress or live up to the challenge. Great post! It gives me ideas!
