I'd rather MrS went up hills at his own pace and waited for me at the top. He used to cycle just behind me, thinking that would encourage me not to get off and walk, but it just irritated me! I am much better up hills now (but will never be as fast as him).
It's nice travelling along together on the flats or downhills. And he does a good job of letting me tuck in behind when we get a headwind (although he can never quite slow down enough for me to keep tucked in when there is an uphill!)
that seems to be the same situation as us, lol. I am not sure why it irritates so much with the encouragement..it does to my wife too. I guess waiting at top of the hills is the way to go...cheers
