I have two centuries coming up that have a tremendous amount of hill climbing involved. One is 8,000 feet, the other is 12,000 feet.
Wanted to get ideas for a training program to help prepare for this. I currently am riding around 120 miles a week on average, we live in an area that has a lot of hills. I also cross train with some weight training, treadmill work and pilates.
I have never done this difficult of a Century, I have only done Tucson (which was relatively flat) and Solvang (which had 2 relatively mild - moderate hills).
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
