The Gothenburg Hills | The hills in the Gothenburg area
This is my first short video of a project I was thinking of while running. The Gothenburg area has no mountains but it's a hilly area. There are interesting climbs in the area and the information that I will try to give to you guys is an idea of what you might expect to see if hiking/running or why not, biking the climb/downhill trail.
I will film these climbs starting from the very bottom of each one. Some are faster than others and some are tougher to climb. While training for long ultra-events it's a good practice to vary the load on your leg muscles by changing the grade of the trail, the technical aspect, the gradient as well. All these aspects will produce a different impact on your muscles, ligaments and joints.
The peak in our area is at it's max around 140mt and the best climbs are around 80mt of elevation gain. This means that you need to do many repeats in order to accumulate a desired amount of vertical gain. Our usual goal is to reach 1000m during one session and the difficulty may vary a lot depending on the weather and the conditions of the trails.
Feel free to contact me and/or suggest other trails in this area.
