comment Best way to train in an area with many hills
I'm in Brazil. In my area practically all roads are in some kind of hill, even though most hills are not steep. I think an average biker would not have problems with them, but at this time, I'm sub-average, so even this slight hills can get me exhausted pretty quickly. Looks like I just need some workout, and must work on keeping a cadence (never really cared about it, now I see this is an important thing in cycling).

That's right. I'm always in the "climbing mood", I just didn't have gained enought cardio yet. It looks like I need to focus on cadence and keep trying until my physical condition improves.

I was looking for techniques (or changes in route, or whatever) that would lessen the difference the needed effort (some while uphill, none while downhill) during my ride. Shifting really does part of the job.
