So I am not going to be really hitting the IM training until July, but I want to get a feel for how hills plays in to my power and so forth. I found a fairly hilly 50 miler around my house, the total elevation gain is 1600 feet. Not bad, but in the grand scheme of things it's about 1000 feet short of being on par with IMWI. Either way, a good ride if it weren't for the cold weather as of late.
This summer I'm going to find something more in IM WI range for hills but for this spring local should be fine.
