Hill Training and Strava KOM

I love travelling around the hills of Dolgellau and this morning was on the road bike again. A new route, with a climb I haven’t done before on skinny tyres. As you’ll see on the video, I had Strava in mind, but specifically one descent segment. It’s great when you come home and nab 3 KOM’s, 1 in ascent and 2 in descent. I also know on a dry day I can take a bit more out of the nasty climb!

Strava makes the solo training feel like a real achievement. Though this isn’t good if you’re competitive and can’t get rid of the devil on your shoulder-be careful out there!
