i'm a mountain biker but i used to ride road bikes too. i have somegreat tips:
-shift your gear efficiently (think about manual transmission carsnn,it's like that)
-stay seated if you cant climb the hill in less than 2 minutes
-try ti steer as straight as possible, dont swivel the handlebar!itsbetter to push on the pedal rather than the handlebar

the tips on the vid is good too!
