Maxing out Highland County's "Hills"

We needed to up our hill climbing practice.  So we decided to do five consecutive loops of the best hilly stretch we have.  It adds up to about a 15 mile hill segment in the middle of our 30 mile local ride.

It worked out pretty well.  The fun was watching some construction guys become increasingly interested in us as we passed their work site time, after time, after time.  One guy was actually smiling and waving by the last couple of passes.

I can't help wondering if they'll still be there next Wednesday when we do that route again.
