Brother-in-law Matt and I did a hilly ride on Saturday. We road along the Mississippi River for a few miles, rode the Big Rivers Trail, and then did hill repeats on THEE Ohio Hill and THEE Ramsey Hill. Here's what our elevation chart looked like:
2 warm-up hills early on, and then 6 nasty repeats.
Matt coming up the 2nd of our "easy hills" early on.
(Sorry for the blurry sweat-on-my-camera photo).
A few miles later cruising behind big sexy on the Big Rivers Trail.
About 170 feet of elevation gain from start to finish.
Just after the finish of #2 (that light pole behind me marks the highest point and my finish).
Heading back down. I did three 0.41 mile repeats in 2:25, 2:26, and 2:29.
That speck in front of that car is me - I'm about 2/3 up the hill.
Straight up Ramsey, then down the quiet "back roads" to the bottom.
I screwed up my first split, but my last 2 were both 1:35 for the 0.22 mile hill.
Close up of the elevation of the 6 hill repeats. Some nasty climbs over 25 mins.
Close to 2,000 feet of climbing over 6 miles!
