"Hills" - Going Up??

I recently had a question from one of the MyCycleTour users asking how to best get a view for where the hills are on the route map.  Yes, we show an elevation profile, and you can drag your cursor along the elevation profile to see where the peaks and valleys are on the map, but wouldn't it be nice to have a complete view on the map of where the hills are.  Red markers to show uphill segments, and green for downhill.  Deeper colours for steep segments!

Now you can easily view hills by clicking the "Hills" button at the top of the map.  You can use this when you plan routes (to either find the hills... or avoid them), or when you are simply reviewing a route later.  It's easy, and its very effective!
