OK, so, my current nemesis is descending when momentum gained through gradient and gravity exceeds pedalling power and I really want to improve on that both in general terms in order to make me a better cyclist and also to improve potential performance. Other than getting to the top of a hill and hurtling down it (with the added bonus of not falling off or disappearing off the road and into the scenery) can anyone give me some tips on how to get better at this aspect? The main problem is that I feel quite inconfident on steeper sections and I can't get the confidence to get into the drops so I ride with my hands on the hoods and feathering the brakes to maintain some degree of control. Obviously neither are good or that advisable hence why I want to iron out this issue and am asking you, the great and the good of this here forum, for some sage advice.
Thanks in advance!
