My cycling goal for 2012 is simple. I hope to complete a number of difficult climbs while on vacation in September.
I will vacation in Italy in September to visit my wife's parents. I'm going to do as much cycling as possible during my visit.
I'll be staying along the coast. However, the area is walled with a steep slope, traveling away from the sea is a 3500ft climb @ 6 to 15% over 10 miles.
Am I out-of-my-mind? I'm looking at the math and my power to weight ratio looks like an issue. Can I train myself into shape to meet this goal?
