Hills make the route selection a little tougher, of course, depending on how you handle hills on the fg. I tried it once but didn't finish it, though not because I couldn't have (crashed out at 50 miles because of a dumb move by another rider).

I don't think there's anything special about preparation, other than trying to get terrain that you can manage on the fg. Compared to a century on a multi-geared bike, you can expect your legs to be more fatigued before the end. Food and water stops need to be planned. In your climate, I don't think you can carry enough water to go the whole way.

Good luck.
