Henry and Chris, my recollection of the route is that most of it looks like you see in the pics due to it being ag land and farms, and WRT to the Cantelow climb, I think the lower slopes are tree covered and then maybe thins out a bit at the top, but nothing like Mont Ventoux or anything like that. Cantelow's not a difficult climb, maybe kind of like a Pierce Rd/Mt Eden combo, and I think even flatlanders would do fine with it. On a hot day, though, it's a good challenge.
