Course Outline

For steeper slopes, you may need to traverse the hill instead of riding straight up it. (Note: Before attempting this exercise, review “Traversing a Slope” and “Riding Downhill.”)

  • Before starting the climb, shift into a lower gear and increase your speed.
  • Approach the hill at a slight upward angle, closer to horizontal than straight up.
  • While traversing the hill:
    • Increase the throttle to keep a steady speed.
    • Lean to the uphill side.
  • On top of the hill, turn around, and traverse the hill downward.
  • Repeat the exercise, traversing the hill in the opposite direction.
