Long, drawn out climbs with short, sharp & steep descents...or the reverse...

What do you prefer?

    Definitely sharp hills up, followed by long steady descents that make you feel like Superman ... until you hit the level and the headwind.

    Short sharp steep hills, with long descents. Oddly enough I don't like steep downhills.

    deffo long drawn out climbs. i love being able to zone out and just focus on keeping moving.
    The dissenter is every human being at those moments of his life when he resigns
    momentarily from the herd and thinks for himself.

    I like that angle :). The reason I ask is I'm off down to Bristol on friday - and with a profile like this

    I'll be spending most of my time on a (very) shallow uphill for the sake of a few sharp-ish runs down.
