Hill training, Best Locations?

Hi,

I've just started a training program to get me fit for the Karopoti (50km) and Colville Connection (72km) both in March. Program is mixed between Road and Mtb sessions. As part of the Mtb training I need to do some hill climbing training to improve technigue and build strength, what are the best places to go for this?

Cheers,
Jay

So, you all know The Fling was easy, right? Didn't have any big hills, right? Worst of 'em was the Halfway Hill which was only 75m or something, right?

LOL... nope! Rob has been telling people this, but noticed on his GPS profile the bottom of Halfway Hill was almost a full 100m lower than the organiser's profile made it. Wow, that makes that a 175m climb which is a bit more of a challenge - how can they be so wrong?

This one's a bit of a challenge. Steep and loose and... well... loose and steep.
