I have hills that are just a matter of routine on my rides. I can still remember the early days of riding when I used to walk up them though.
Unfortunately there's no next hill at this point as it dead-ends into another road
I find myself getting better at hill climbing. I'm not sure how I'll do on long gradual climbs since most of the hills I ride are of the short, steep variety.
I'm beginning to think there may be something wrong with me as I want to go back and tackle Bruckner hill. That's the steep winding hill from a recent bike tour. I rode it but had to do it in stages......I want to be able to ride up it without stops
Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.
