So with the Amashova and 94.7 fast approaching, I need to spend more time riding serious hills. Climbing is my biggest weakness. I can ride flats well, my body is able to handle distances of 80-100km so thats not a major concern now. Now looking at the Amashova profile, and with the first 15km being UP I need to prepare for that. Where in Durban would you train hills that will help make a difference ? Something that I could do on a weekend. I live in Merewent and started riding in Bluff but there isn't any loooong climbs around here. Can 1 ride the Amashova route or part of it while still being safe from traffic ? And I have to add this as I know it will come up... I am working on my weight loss... 10Kg down already since April and pushing hard to get to about 85kg by end September. Currently 95kg. Thanks.
