Here is a crude map of the Texas “hill country”. Right in the center of the map you can see Fredericksburg, this is ground zero for Hellweek.

Training program begun for Hellweek. Doing spinning classes two to three times a week to work on interval training (speed and hills). Spending a lot of time on the trainer getting “saddle time”, between 5 to 10 hours per week to start with. Also looking to drop some more weight before the event, any weight dropped is weight I don’t have to pedal up those hills.
