Well, I'm thinkin' "hilly terrain" is a relative term. (But then, I live near "the mountains" of Shenendoah Nat'l Park, that would leave a Coloradan scratching her head. "I don't see any mountains."). That bike route looks a little dubious, too.

Roadbuzz, the hilly terrain sign is a little early on its warning.A few miles down the road it looks like picture #1. I'm Hillyman not mountainman.If you have signs that say hilly terrain going into the mountains, I think thats understating the situation! In picture #1 you can barely see Bald Knobb Cross in the background.Believe it or not the locals of Alto Pass area call it Bald Knob mountain.This area is the tail end of the Ozark mountain chain.Mountain overstates,hilly is perfect.The Trans-America runs right through here,and I've been asked by many tourers if theres a flater route than the bike route.

Ahhhh!

Yep. I see it.

Btw, thanks for posting those. I always enjoy seeing where folks ride. And ditto Racso, nice bike!
