I would worry you are going to spend more time sat in a van than sat on your bike... besides I like riding uphill.
I've nothing against riding uphill, but yesterday I jumped on the innerleithen bus a couple of times and it meant I could do an average day's climbing but about twice as much descending. Can't be bad can it?
For me, uplifts aren't about avoiding climbing, they're just about spending more time descending. After a good uplift day I'm just as knackered as after a day's xc, it's differently physical but still no lazy option.
