I haven’t ridden these routes but assuming you’re reasonably trained, (1000 miles should be good!) and you have modern gearing on your bike, you’ll be fine.  Although it looks like a lot of climbing on paper, remember that it’s rollers with just as many ‘downs’ as “ups”.    If you hit a hill that’s a little more serious, just gear down and keep spinning…we’re not racing.

Frankly, I’m more concerned about the heat and hoping that it breaks before we all hit the road.
