My Kid Dropped Me on Hill Climb
Ticked me off.
Went on a family bike ride and he lagged behind the whole time, with the headset going and half pedaling and coasting. We stopped a couple of times to wait for him.
Get to near the end of the ride and we have to go up a steep hill, of perhaps a 100 foot vertical climb. I'm just biking it like I usually do, not too fast not too slow and I make my way up. He comes from nowhere, and bobs his frickin' head to the music as he drops me.
Woa is me.
I pump it up and still can't catch him.
Well, I don't want this to ever, ever happen again!
I bike all the time and this bumpkin never does.
What's a good excersize to improve my strength on climbs?
He's a junior in high school and he works out regularly, in prep for football. I'm thinking its the squats he does that gave him his great climb. I never squat. Would this help me quite a bit? Anything else?
