Sorry to belabor the point and double post in the thread (and thanks for your input sab), but does anyone else think an intermediate lesson is actually worth 70 bucks for one hour? I just want some tips on handling steeps and speed at this point. I'm confident I can figure it out by riding, but everyone always talks up lessons like they're the cat's pajamas. However the few people I know who have taken lessons (albeit beginner lessons) didn't think they were worthwhile.

edit: cool thanks Leo, didn't have to double post after all.
