It's that time of the year again...head for the hills! Conte's Tuesday Hill rides start up again today at 6:30. below is the information from their website. I went to these rides all last year and they really helped to improve my cycling. Nothing like 1 hr of constant hill climbing! Hope to see anyone that lives in the area there!
Tuesday Night Group Ride Starts April 21st Weekly Hill Workout and Monthly BBQ hosted by Conte's and Teamz
Conte's and TeamZ are again hosting the Weekly Hill Workout. The Arlington Group Ride will be held every Tuesday night starting on April 21st through September 8th at 6:30 p.m. The group rides will last approximately one hour. The first Tuesday of every month Conte's and TeamZ will host a post-ride BBQ in the Conte's parking lot beginning May 6.
The ride will leave Conte's at 6:30 p.m. and head to the Custis Trail for a short warmup. The hill workout will take place on the hilly roads and neighborhoods between the Key Bridge and Chain Bridge. There are three hill routes riders can pick and choose from. The Weekly Bike Hill Workout is open to everyone and riders of all levels are encouraged.
The Crit - a short, 0.8 mile loop with one steep hill in the residential neighborhoods. See cue sheets below.
Military Misery - a 5 mile run of steady climbs and descents on Military Road between Key and Chain Bridges. This road has a wide bike lane, no stop signs or traffic lights, and is excellent for steady hill training. See cue sheets below.
Westernport Wall Wanna-Be - the closest parallel Northern Virginia has to the Westernport Wall. For those who are concerned about SavageMan's Westernport Wall or like steep climbs, this hill starts at the base of the Chain Bridge and goes up steep 41st St into residential neighborhoods, culminating at Military Road. See cue sheets below.
