The only time some buddies and myself can take off 1-2 weeks is in January.
We are looking for some suggestions for a warm weather January destination for 7-12 days of bicycle touring/riding.
Either U.S. or International.
It can be either a place where we stay in one location and do day rides from the same location or where we go from point to point and stay in a different place every night.
It can be either road or off road, although we prefer lightly traveled and scenic paved roads.
Stays can be either at hotels or camping, but we don't want to do a self sufficient tour where we carry our own stuff (clothes, tents, sleeping bags, etc) with us. We prefer basic hotel accommodations with nice restaurants nearby. We won't be cooking if we camp.
We don't want to go on a super deluxe, very expensive, stays in high end accommodations tour, but ideally, we want to book through company that has everything (routes, accommodation) already planned out.
Distances can be 50-80 miles/day if on paved roads or less if the roads/trails are rougher.
Any suggestions? (we have already been riding in New Zealand)
The key here is sunny and warm weather in January.
