Training for long hills
Ok, so I've entered IMCH for next year. Looking at the bike course and chatting with a friend who did it a couple of years ago it seems that the majority of the climbing is long pulls, rather than the short sharp hills where I live. I have seen riser blocks for the front wheel advertised at TriUk, and wonder whether anyone has any experience of using them? What effect does raising the front wheel have? I assume it must alter the engagement of the leg muscles to mimic a real climb by altering your position on the bike? Or not. Worth a punt??
