The Fit Recovery Cycling Dictionary defines the word “hill” thusly:

Hill
hil

Noun

A section of raised land that requires use of the Baby Ring.

Differing from the actual definition of the word “hill”, the cycling definition of the word implies more than just your standard speed bump where the land rises for about 20-30 feet over an eighth of a mile.  Do not be caught using the word “hill” in a sentence when referring to such a speed bump lest you be scorned with the typical response for doing so:  “There are no hills on this ride”.   For Instance, this is a speed bump:

Know the difference and choose your words wisely.

    My definition of “hill” has certainly changed during my tour, I remember thinking the hills in Missouri were big, hehe. This morning I climbed 2,000 ft in 8 miles…that’s a real hill!
