So my wife and I are planning our vacation for next summer (end of May through the first part of June). One of the suggestions I had was doing a bicycle tour (le Route Verte, something around wine country in California, etc), and I was wondering if the collected intelligentsia of the Bike Forums Touring section had any suggestions for a good starter tour.
We have a good deal of experience camping, as well as the gear for backpacking, so that's not an issue. We both have bikes that accept racks or have them on them already, so again, gear transport isn't a problem.
What I'm looking for: a rout that allows 30-50 mile days, preferably starting off at the lower end the first few days, and building from there. Rolling terrain is fine, but extremes probably wouldn't be the best. Since we live in about the middle of the US, something northeast, west, or southwest would probably be good locations. We'll have about 10 days to play with, including getting to and from the starting point, so a total distance of about 400 miles would probably be about the max we could handle.
