alright, im on a single speed, as most of you already know. today, since i bitched out on racing, i went out for a ride. if you look at a sattelite of google earth, berkshire valley is pretty much the steepest valley in the state(conjecture) on the eastern side. i live at the bottom of that eastern side. i decided to do interval 'attempts' . there are a couple of trails that pretty much go straight up the mountain, and i attempted to ride up one of them repeatedly. never made it all the way. my legs are already sore. will this help or hurt me? does it count as interval training? i'm thinking after a few weeks of doing it over and over one day a week, i should be able to make it up. we'll see though.
