A choice of 8 hill training loops from warm up to challenging. All loops start and end in the parking lot, near food and restrooms. Ride any combination of loops in any order.
Ride leader will sweep riders new to these routes. Good for hill training and anyone hill-curious (about routes above D grade).
An explanation for those not familiar with this "ride":
We typically all do the warm up loop together and then split into small groups, depending on which riders want to do a more or less challenging loop next. Riders' pace on climbs can vary a lot, so we climb at our own pace and regroup before the next climb. Most climbs are short, except on the more challenging loops. At the end of each loop, riders decide what loop they want to do next, possibly forming into new groups, or take a coffee/snack break, or pack it in when they're done. Call/text the ride leader (me) if you have questions.
