I had time for a longer Sunday ride today, so I made it fast.1 At least I tried to.
There’s something unavoidably painful about hills. You can slow down and ease the pain, but it’s going to last a lot longer. I’m not convinced that’s a win. You can stand up and crank up a hill, but if you don’t judge it right, you’ll be empty before the hill is.2 You can avoid the hills, but what’s the fun in that?
