only 200ft elevation between top and bottom isn't terrible. I've learned that the biggest factor is the grade, which you can view on the website. The maximum negative average grade. Hills that aren't too steep, followed by long shallow negative grade just enough to keep momentum are ideal.

Everyones graph has a different scale with regard to elevation. Even if it looks terrible, they don't scale distance in miles to "look" equal in regard to feet of elevation.
