I have a ride that has a section that is about 6 miles long, maybe 7. It is mostly uphill. Decent grade. When I started to train for a ride I decided to time this one section. A month ago it took me 28min 50sec to do. Yesterday I did it in 24'50".
Just a fun thing to do. I usually do it when I'm alone on a ride and it gives me something to do, rather than be bored to tears.
That's all. Rock on.
