I prefer not to stop at all. I have found that there's hard work on uphills, but then a downhill or flat follows where I rest. Take it easy going downhill and recover breath. And take that drink and eat a bit. Then when the next hard bit comes along, you're ready again. The problem with stopping anything longer than just 2 or 3 minutes is that your muscles cool down, and then you have to get them warm again. Ouch. These days the only thing I stop for is for a pee or a 30 minute break for lunch.
