Riding tonight

I'm thinking to ride up to GW or just along the water. Central Park will be crazy. Here's the link to the map of where they'll be running - you can't ride in the lower or top loops without interference.

Do hills

The Corp Challenge doesn't go above 102 St. I didn't try it, but perhaps one could ride back and forth between the hills on the upper part of the loop. I'm a new cyclist. Is there such a think as hill work in cycling like there is in running?

102nd St

True, the race doesn't go above 102nd St, but 102nd St is the Traverse (road which cuts across the Park) and is used as the topmost loop of the race,

Yes, Va., there is a hill

Jim, there is definately training known as hill repeats.
The north end of Central park is an excellent beginning to do hill repeats. I am not sage enough to recomment the number of repeats, in what gear combinations, but there are other who are.

I can say this, after you get some repeats on the CP hill, you will want to check out River road, and specifically the Alpine Climb at its north end. Then just over the NJ state line are a couple of climbs known as Ash Street and Bradley-Tweed.
Further north in Rockland Co. is Little Tor (not so little). Then there are the hills in Harriman state park, including Perkins Drive.

On the East side of the Hudson is Whipporwill road in Westchester. For the intermediate and advanced climber, there is the entire township of Putnam Valley.

You want hills, we got em!
