Rollers: They might be a tool for you to get into shape for cycling. There are two kinds of “rollers” in the Mid-West: One would be those you sweat over in a basement or garage to stay fit in the Winter. The other kind you can ride on too. These are the type which are a successive number of hills strung together on a nice gravel or dirt road. Which would you prefer?
These are rollers in Iowa from the course of Trans Iowa V7. Some of you sharp eyed readers with a long memory might recall this was the cover of a “Dirt Rag” issue a few years back.
