BTW, you riding the Tour of the Hills, Nick? (Or anyone else on the forum?)

No Tour of the Hills for me - not back on the road for 1.5 weeks still (pending final - I hope - clearance from consultant) and then it will be some gentle laps of Richmond Park to start with. Due to turbo-ing 5 days per week for past 10 weeks I don't think I can pedal for more than 1hr at a time any more! I worked out that I have ridden a 'turbo distance' of 1125 miles - how sad it that?! Really has been a summer to forget.

Let's look at london's highest climbs.Highgate hill- 5 yards.Hampstead Heath-7 yards.Shooters Hill-5.9 yards.All of which is a bit null and void as you need a gas mask to get up 'em.

Tour of the (Surrey) Hills yesterday - 115km, 2300m of climbing and most of it very steep. I feel more tired today than I did after riding the Marmotte.

Yes, Surrey hills can be tough. Further out, but plenty of tough climbing in the Chilterns, per another thread somewhere here.

I rode the Chiltern 100 last year - the climbs are great (very similar to the Surrey Hills really).steep though, none of this 6% nonsense, what you wants a good engine, none of your powermeter rubbish getting in the way of your natural RPE, no, thats what you want if you want to improve on the hills Richard and make no mistake, i wont hear no for an answer this time, you need a penny farthing

Having ridden and raced an ordinary bicycle or 'penny farthing' as you insist on calling it, I can state with confidence that one is not what I need, especially when riding around the Surrey Hills
