I look at hills as energy batteries that can be very efficient if you approach them correctly. My goal is to be rolling at my most efficient speed (about 40 mph) at the bottom of the hill. I often crest a hill just crawling and hoping to make it over the top.

This works when you can look in the mirror and see no traffic.

Hills in my area are fairly small.

I hate stop signs at the bottom of hills.
