Spotts Park 'Hill' Repeats

Spotts park is a bowl. Here's an example... All sides have an hill that varies from 10 to about 30 feet. It's pretty steep. I'm guessing 3:1 slope? Not great for hill repeats, but it's some of the best we've got here in town. Ride up, u-turn, bomb down, quickly u-turn and repeat.

Pedal, pedal, pedal... whoosh!
Pedal, pedal, pedal... whoosh!

You get the idea. You can go all around the park edge for some variation, but it does get a bit monotonous. It is good practice though.

Just watch out for the dog crap. Nothing quite like pedaling up and having the wheel slip out from under you because you ran over some dog crap! That stuff is slippery when fresh. It'll take you down if you aren't careful...
