    How to make the most of living in a flat area

    This is how I get some hill climbing strength without having to drive 25 miles to get to the real climbs.

    This time I mounted the Playsport to the head tube of my Worksman Port-O-Trike and climbed some bridges. I also got footage of some flooded areas. This happens every winter.

    Guess you get headwinds, sometimes.. Netherlands has some nasty ones even in the summer.

    ..been there done that..

    a pedal boat, or a sliding seat rowing shell, upstream should be a good effort.

    Yup, and hail too! Had to haul ass to hide under a freeway overpass because hail hurts!
