Ride Categories

Category I Flat to low rolling hills (quite easy pedaling)
Category II More frequent rolling hills, possibly several short, steep hills (a hearty workout)
Category III Moderate, longer hills, with a few steep climbs (need to be experienced and in good biking condition)
Category IV Frequent hills, some long and steep climbs (these are tough rides and will take endurance)
