You can’t learn to climb long hills without climbing long hills, so from here, we head west to the mountains.

Here are our Balanced Movement Climb Training rules:

  1. Ride as a group to climb.
  2. Climb at your own pace.
  3. When you top out, descend back to the last person in the group and then ride with them back up to the top.

You descend relatively together, re-group, and ride the flats and rollers as a group. Everyone gets to put all they want into the climbs, but all stay together for the day.

This works really well, as long as you like the group you are with. So be picky about who you invite along.

As a semi pro ultra runner I’m always looking for a tune up to make the many miles I run more efficient. Brian helped me rework a movement pattern in my shoulder, and abdominal rotation resulting in a 30 second per mile speed up, while feeling like I’m running with the same easy effort.
I also enjoy Scott’a yoga classes to help me relax and reset my very stiff body.
