First off I live in Central Massachusetts and can't go to far before I start running into rolling terrain. Second I work about 18 miles away in the forth hilliest city in the US. Fitchburg is also home to the second oldest bicycle race in the US The Longsjo Classic. So where I live and work you best learn to enjoy hills because it's hard to go anywhere without them. Fitchburg which we refer to as The Burg has over forty of what I call thigh burners. Short little climbs that can have section in the high 20's and lot's in the high teens. So here are a couple that I played on today on my ride.
