Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Today's Hill Workout

Went out this morning for some work in the hills around the city here.

Ended up doing three repeats of Norton Summit, one of the popular climbs in Adelaide. Lots of fun with a few switchbacks.

Route details: http://toporoute.com/cgi-bin/getSave...PXNARORAUYVOJG

2,745 ft of climbing in total.

Did a personal best on the first repeat, 16:06 (almost got to see my breakfast a second time), which puts my power at 4.1 W/kg, up from 3.9 W/kg when I attempted it last week. Second and third attempts were 17:31 and 18:03, respectively.

Mmm, smells like progress
