I have read good reviews about this, but wanted to know how hilly are we talking? Just rollers, like Paluxy Pedal, etc? Anyones views on the routes especially the 100k would be appreciated!

Not familiar with the actual ride, but have you driven on I-20 through that area? It's a pretty big freakin' ridge.

Yeah it's probably the longest sustained climb in the DFW area, a couple miles long and moderately steep.

But, so what? It's a fun ride, go ride and have fun.

Cherry Pie Hill is the longest and toughest that I know of in the dfw area. The toughest road that I see on the 60 mile route for the H4tH is Old Buena Vista. It's nowhere close to 2 miles long though it is moderately steep. Cherry pie is much worse. If you come do a 200k with me I can get you 9k of climbing easy with cherry pie as the least of your worries.

Don't sweat the head for the hills. You'll be fine.
