Biking buddy and I are planning a 5 day trip there this summer, probably in the first half of July, and seeking thoughts on where to go. Tthe aim is to find hotels or B&Bs in a couple of places and ride loop routes from there (or drive to a start point for that matter). So three nights in one town and two in another? We have road bikes and will be looking to ride 40 or 50 miles a day, perhaps stopping to do tourist stuff (museums, hikes) along the way. Good food is a bonus, good bike shops a double bonus.
Any ideas welcome.
