That's what I'm talking about - Climb baby Climb! Yesterday I went out for my long ride and since I’m currently training for the infamous Buffalo Springs Lake Half-Ironman, I wanted to hit some hills. The great thing about living in the Rio Rancho/Albuquerque area is that there is no shortage of hills. I got in 60.3 miles and had maybe 6 total miles of flat ground, the rest of the time I was either heading up or down. To make things more interesting there were constant winds with heavy gusts. I was able to maintain an 18.5 mph pace, which is respectable for the conditions and this time of year. I know as a Clyde the whole power to weight ratio isn’t on my side but who cares, right? Just gotta get more power!
