Climbing a steep hill(Barhatch lane ~20%) yesterday the rear wheel slipped a few times after getting damp passing through a puddle.
Fortunately grip returned as the rest of the road was dry, however this lead me to think how do you climb when the road is wet?
Is there a particular technique, is it about equipment, should I just avoid steep hills when wet?
So having had my bike stolen ive gone and spent the insurance on (hopefully) all the required components to build one myself!
Planet x Carbon frame and largely 105 gruppo, Just before i begin wondered if you guys had any top tips or tricks that i may not get from books/online help? Anything appreciated! Cheers
