Here's a couple more hilly rides in the area that you might like. The Old Kentucky Home ride and TriRi. The Old Kentucky Home ride is from Louisville, Ky to Bardstown Ky. You spend the night in Bardstown and ride back on Sunday. There are free bourbon tastings if you get to Bardstown in time. The first time I rode it I thought that Bardstown was on the top of a mountain because it seemed all we did was climb. The ride is in Sept.
If you do tours there is a tour called TriRi in Indiana. June and Sept are the months they are done in. The participants ride to Indiana state parks, spend the night then go to another park. Joe, the person who choses the routes loves hills so he picks the hilliest roads he can find. The tour rotates to different sections of the state each year. Part of the June tour this year is around Bloomington and Brown County, the area where the Hilly Hundred is held.
Yes, my little Swift will get a good workout next year. It usually gets a pretty good workout in the summer when I'm off, too!
