I used to live in Cincinnati, which isn't too bad of a weekend trip from anywhere near Indy. There's a great hill on Cinci's west side, I used to hit it on my way home from work 2x weekly when I rode in. It's bad enough of a hill that when they had class-3 snow emergencies (police and emergency vehicles only allowed to drive) they'd barricade the road at the top and bottom to keep people from driving on it.
Grand Avenue from Queen City to W. 8th: 1.5 miles, 401 feet elevation gain. Not much compared to the hills out here, but certainly a closer drive.
