Yes, climbing hills can be fun and worthwhile. The point of this ride is to gain the stamina and technique to accomplish steep climbs energy EFFICIENTLY. It is NOT for speed and power training. The Hill Climb Club routes link together some of the toughest hills in NE Baltimore. We climb about 140 ft. per mile for a little over an hour. The ride is quite difficult, but we will stick together and ride at a slow and steady "touring" pace. You will not need a cue sheet. Depending on your strength as a rider you should be prepared with gearing that allows you to complete 6-8 hard climbs for eleven miles. The downhills on this ride are also very steep, so you MUST have good functioning brakes. You must also have good lighting to ride at night. I will cancel the ride if the roads are wet. The Hill Climb Club was originally created as a training tool to prepare riders for the Rando Ramble monthly century ride series. I've spent a couple months tweaking two different routes and getting feedback from Hill Climb Club regulars Justin and Dave. Now it's time to add to the membership.

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( http://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/bb_nutrition/ ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
