Workout:  Standing Hill repeats 3 sets x 5 @ 30 seconds.   I picked the cobbles.  This short  type of interval is hard for me to ride with good form.   Riding the cobbles makes "form" the all important aspect of this workout.  The rough uneven surface of the cobbles, jostles the bike.  The wheels skip, spin, its hard to keep steady, fast traction.  This challenge makes body positioning/balance more pronounced.  I concentrate on  driving the bike into the ground, keeping the rear wheel in contact.   Ass back a bit, but still pulling on the bars, with the back, arms and core, driving down and forward, a complete use of the body workout.
