    up or down

    I'm just wondering if there's anyone else out there who likes going uphill more than down I certainly was'nt always this way but over the last couple years I've started really enjoy the challenge of a nasty climb wether it be road or trail .I used to only go up so I could go down , now I only go down to get the sweat off me(I love all disciplines of cycling , the change of priorities is a surprise ) so...how about you all , up or down -and why if you care to give reasons

    Up. Anybody can go down a hill. Going up strong separates the men from the boys and gives a much higher degree of accomplishment and satisfaction.

    Not that I don't love a sweet fast descent, mind you. And crankin' on a nice flat .... mmmmm. yep. it is all good.
