I haven't ridden Pedal Thru the Pines, but I have ridden the MS 150 which travels much of that route - it goes through the state parks with their hills. The hills are fairly steep, but not too long. I'd recommend finding some hills in your area and doing repeats on them to build your climbing muscles.
The shoulder along Hwy 71 is generous; traffic wasn't a problem for me.
