George Peck: "Hills should be taken standing up without holding the saddle. You can get tremendous torque by getting as far forward as possible. Watch out, because this puts you as risk for a dismount out the front. The closer you get to the edge of the balance envelop the quicker youíll go through it. But you have to be at the edge to optimize performance; so go slow, get back momentarily for obstacles and scooch over them with your hips. All of which is a good trick while leaning way forward. Itís a skill that will take time and sensitivity to develop."

This quote has helped me get to the top of some very entry level hills. I can't wait to apply it to more challenging hills.

Be well and keep pushing the 'edge'.
