Hill climbing 101
Hill climbing 101 states to improve your hill-climbing abilities, you must climb some hills.
Luckily, Montreal has a big hill as its physical and spiritual heart. Mont Royal has several excellent choices for the cyclist looking to improve the hill climbing, starting with Camilien Houde from Mont Royal avenue. In fact, this 1.7 km 15% hill will improve you fast and the hill (and all hills) will seem a lot shorter and easier. Hint: the more laps you do, the better you will be.
We rode up tonight on the way home from work, and it was good (as in painful and hard). It will be more good if we keep doing it every third day for the next ten weeks. (we can dream!)
