One of my all time guilty pleasures is to watch Jarvis on-board vids in their entirety. I'm about 1h50 through this one. There used to be more on his channel but they don't seem to add as many now.

I could do that 1st bit.
You know? Like untill he got to the railway lines, then I'd probably tip off crossing them.

That first hill I was surprised how nonplussed the spectators were with the chance of a handguard to the face.

I did learn a bit from his technique though.

If ever you are in one of those switch over uphill left right do or die areas. Try to be Graham Jarvis. That should make it easier.

I've kept going back to watch more, thanks for link.

I just don't understand how he gets traction on some of the positions he's in.

I'd probably cry if I found myself on that 1st hill.

I lot of the other areas make me wonder if there is a guided tour in the less extreme areas.

But I'd still need a lottery win. Hard as I did math so I don't buy tickets.

Try letting 2psi out of your rear tyre and turning the idle up slightly.

Didn't work for me but maybe you'll have more luck.
