    +1 on above comments. You mentioned "same effort, go faster". If you have a heart rate monitor, check it sitting and standing. I'll bet your HR is higher when you stand.

    11 weeks is plenty of time. Just increase your time on the bike (or distance) by about 10%/week. That way, you won't hurt yourself and you will do just fine. Make it a mix of flats and hills. Go with...

    The grade increases as you get closer to the top. I will have to look back on some of my rides to see if I picked it up, but it is probably closer to 18% for the last 50'
