Do you enjoy the climbs?

  1. 1. How do you feel about the hills?

    • I attack them and tend to plan rides with climbs
    • I avoid them. Being weak is fine for me

    • Isn't "the Hills" a TV show?

    • I do them, but I don't enjoy it.
    • I live in flatland. We only have hills over overpasses.

Yes.  I currently live at an intersection that is at the bottom of 2 ridges.  Any one of the 4 directions I go are uphill.  We bought this place 3 1/2 years ago and the only way we found it was because I wanted to attack some hills on a ride.  I was riding the hills I now live between and saw the for sale sign.

 

Doing hill repeats is quick.  I have 4 different hills of varying grades and lengths right outside my garage.

I love the climbs, but unfortunately I have to ride 40 miles to get to an area with anything close to one. There a few tiny hills nearby good for hill repeats, but nothing that makes me shift out of the 53ring.

 

I live in New England.  I try to stay in the 50 (I have a compact), but there have been plenty of times where I was in the little ring and big cog.

 

This year during the Mt Washington Century I had to stop 4 or 5 times.  No walking, but I had to stop.

My goal next year is no stopping on the climbs.
