'analytical' my approximate ratings are:
  • 15 <= m ascent per km <= 20 = 'hilly'
I have been working on a hilly 600km riding Wales end-to-end (and back). Not yet polished but here's the latest draft:

Will have to wait a bit till Wales opens up before riding the route, probably 4 days @ 100 miles a day.

11,500m ascent, and 'only' 602km, so near enough 3,000m over 150km per day; or 2,000m per 100km. That's really lumpy and four contiguous days of it. Looks hard work!
Edit: P.S. Your top link is to a 600 around Cornwall and Devon.

Only problem with that, Colin, is that at 150km you'd be deep in the wilds of the upper Elan valleys so my plan was a longer first day to (in normal times) the YH in Borth (N of Aber' on the coast ~187k) and then a shorter second day up and around Snowdonia to the Swallow Falls YH (between Capel Curig and Betws-y 334k). Short Day 3: there's forest bunkhouse near Staylittle (443k) for Night 3 leaving a healthy 160km to finish off. We'll see.

July's done . I've been busy breaking all my road bikes ,TCR waiting part for hydraulic brakes ,Broken spoke on the Defys rear wheel ,freehub failure on spare wheel so the hybrid was taken off commuting duty for its only second 100km . My hybrid has front suspension and a rear rack so it's not really made for longer distance rides so it was a tough ride today but over the line for another month . Today was my last chance as next Sunday is my only remaining day to get a long ride in and that's reserved for an imperial ton
