I’m looking to find a few workouts that would mimic or train me for climbing mountain passes. I’m new to Trainer Road. Have done Basic - medium and working though Build.
I have done Ride the Rockies, and am signed up for the Triple By-Pass.
I have toured across the US and do Randonneur endurance rides.
Living at low elevations with maximum 8% grade and 1/2 mile long hills isn’t the same. Hill repeats help but you rest every time you come back down.
Age 59 with FTP 220.
I know I won’t spin up the mountain. But am capable of grinding my way up an over anything.
I would love to spin but find myself in the last gear and at least I can keep a steady cadence.
All I know for sure is that if I train hard, a long hard day is more enjoyable.
