My wife and I are thinking about a 2 week cycle tour in America next April. Due to flying times , we should I suppose look at one of the warmwer states in the East coast. But we really have no idea. Salt Lake City was suggested, but is that more for mountain bikes? Our son was in Boulder Colarado a couple of years ago and says we should go there. We are looking for good weather, we have enough rain over here in the north of Scotland, quite roads and not to hilly. Any suggestions please. Thanks

RE: Cycling USA

It all depends. If you are not into hills Colorado is out, it is a very hilly State, and I don't think you want to spend 2 weeks touring Boulder. I'd recomend you look at the organized rides or cycling events and correspond your trip with one of those. You can get all the info on recumbent rides at http://www.ihpva.org. Good luck.

Try Virginia/North Carolina

Euan, If you want to spend 2 weeks cycling over here, I'd strongly suggest riding in Virginia and North Carolina. There's the Blue Ridge Parkway, one of the most beautiful roads in the world, (469 miles in the mountains) to some beautiful beaches along NC's Outer Banks. You could start in Northern Virginia/Washington D.C. and see the history of the USA. There's a lot of history in these 2 states, including a large Scotch-Irish presence in the Virginia and NC mountains.
I've never found such diversity of terrain and friendlier people than in these two states. If you like hills, I'd go with the Parkway. If not, try Norfolk and The Outer Banks along the coast. There are beautiful lighthouses, golf courses, small towns, big cities, and great B&B's all over the states. Use your local search engine for "Blue Ridge Parkway" and "Outer Banks" and do some research. Good luck...
