Imagine you have to climb 100m over 5km. Would you prefer a 5km drag at 2% gradient or 4km flat followed by a 1km ramp at 10% gradient.

I used to prefer the drag, but recently I seem to like flat followed by ramp, somehow it feels easier.

Any opinions?

I'd go for the 10% i think. i hate those long gradual climbs, at least 10% for a km is something you can attack...

Yes ramp for me.

Easy to say though - I'm a two hour drive from the nearest hills.  3
