Personally, I'd go for flat, because 100 m would be the upper limit for me anyway, so I'd need all the help I could get. If I could zip up and down hills like these roadies, then maybe I'd go for hilly and scenic.
I'd try to go on routes I was somewhat familiar with, just to make sure I avoided the narrow suicide roads. Also, so I didn't ride through 90 miles of whatever and exhaust myself, then come to the hilliest 10 miles in the country to finish.
A big loop is preferable, but you'll have trouble making it exactly a 100 miles. Regardless, it helps if you have some places where you can change the route to cut it short if need be. If you start having some chafing or cramping or other unforeseen problem, that last 50 miles could get awfully long.
