Very nice.    As a flatlander it's not the hills and it's not the "U" turns. It's the "U" turn on the steep uphill that unnerves me. That feeling of  "if it stalls I'm going down".  Is that only me?
Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.
As fast as you possibly can.

"Keep going you old darling" is considerably more 'pre-watershed' language than I'd have been using at that point I can tell you :)
