i recently got my first road bike and im trying to learn this sport. recently i was told or office would be closed for 3 days in april so i'll get a 5 day weekend. with not much time to financially plan for a vacation, im thinking about going on a road trip alone with my bike. i live in western KY and im looking for a place i could go that isnt to far away where i could camp and ride. i have considered gatlinberg TN, is there anywhere else i should consider? how do i find locations that are safe to ride using the internet? google isnt helping me much. nothing is really specified as to the riding being for road bikes or mtn bikes.
