Perfect Your Pedaling - An excellent way to become a better pedaler is to practice a shuffle-like pedal action. This resembles the motion used to scrape mud off the bottoms of your shoes. Each time a pedal reaches 3 o'clock, pull straight back (parallel to the ground) with the front foot and push straight forward with the trailing foot. This action feels funny at first but if you work at it a bit, you'll find that it helps a lot, especially on hills. And, after a while you'll pedal smoother than ever because you're able to apply power through more of the stroke. This happens because the new fore-and-aft motion complements the natural up-and-down pedal action.
In many cycling races and events this safety rule is intended to keep riders from crossing the yellow centerline on the road. Punishment for breaking this rule may include a time penalty, being relegated to the back of the pack or even disqualification.
