the iron price

Do you watch Game of Thrones? When people ask me if a tattoo hurts I always tell them you have to pay the iron price. But this post is about riding bikes. Specifically, riding them up hills.
You can't pay the gold price, there is no way to buy yourself a ride up the hill, even if you have an expensive lightweight bike, you still have to pedal it up on your own.
What does riding a bike up a hill have to do with anything?
Hills are where the glory is, do you know who the best sprinter is?
No? But I bet you've heard of Pantani and Armstrong!
But we don't ride hills for glory, we're just normal people. We're riding them for ourselves.
The only way to know if you can do something, is to pay the iron price and do it!
