The San Diego Century has some climbing that ranges from novice level on the 37 mile route to moderate on the 66 mile route (including the 3 Witches Climb) and challenging on the 103 mile route (with 11 miles of climbing to Ramona that includes the Purple Monster Climb segment). With your training plans this week and with group rides this weekend you’ll have hill workouts and climbing to start getting ready for May. With climbing in mind this week’s contest question is all about the hills.
If you haven’t participated yet, we will be giving away San Diego Century bike jerseys this week (and every week until 5/19) with some fun website contest questions. We gave away one jersey this past Sunday, so there will be one winner on Friday from those who participate this week. The winner will receive a free 2012 San Diego Century bike jersey.
Whether or not you want to participate, be sure to check out our 2012 merchandise, including the jersey, t-shirts and caps.
This week’s question is “What is your favorite climb, or favorite hill workout?” If you have a GPS track (from your phone, Garmin or manual entry) for a great climb, share it with your fellow riders! Post a comment below with your answer to get in on the Jersey contest.
