32 x 28t is not enough for me to keep a decent cadence on many hills in town, but I've gotten some of the tougher climbs bagged just by standing up and pushing as hard as I can. For some reason this particular climb right in town I have always avoided just because of the early grade as you turn left onto Witham Hill. It is not long, probably less than a mile: it starts right at lincoln and has a momentum crushing stop sign a little later right as you're getting mentally prepared: Doesn't really look too bad on Google terrain or maps, and the climb actually gets much worse the further out you go, past Walnut. Some of those climbs I have done on the MTB - thanks triple crank - but haven't even attempted yet on the Circuit.
I'm going to go do some knee damage and then report here later.
