You're right, Pilot is hard, but Hanging Rock has steeper climbs and coming from Winston it's about equal in overall climb.
I'm trying to use fitness equipment while travelling to keep some semblance of fitness. My home ride has changed some also as we have moved out of our house for a couple of months while major renovations go on. The family is in an apartment and the Trek is in the honored dining room spot. The problem is this complex opens onto a major fast road where a friend of mine was hit while jogging early this fall. He was well into the breakdown lane, but it seems not to matter. The result is that I am very cautious about my early morning rides. It sort of has me spooked. So if I am home, I ride on weekends more and if the weather, fog, whatever makes visibility questionable I pedal a cycle in the apartment fitness room. I'll be out there soon, hold a date and we'll ride Pilot together!!
