Off-season hill climbing training tip

Sorry, no offense to ebikers out there, but kind of funny since I have not seen an ebike indoor trainer yet.
Take care,
Jesper

This can also be true for mountain bikers, practicing for taking the shuttle by riding an escalator. A nice way to ease into off-season training lol

I asked a mountain bike park if I could climb the slopes and not pay for lift tickets. I figured it was an obvious option for anyone who rides mountain bikes. They would not respond after several queries. I ride uphill and down; or carry my bike on my shoulder or back if I cannot ride uphill. They must think I'm insane, but I get much more exhilaration going down after having gotten to the top on my own. I guess that park wanted to make more money from me, but it ends up I will not go there at all, so their loss not mine!
Take care,
Jesper
